Abstract

The AA. present 4 glacial geomorphic maps of Llanquihue drift in the region of the southern Lake District, Seno Reloncaví, and the eastern half of northern Isla Grande de Chiloé, Chile. These maps form the basis of an interdisiplinary research project to establish a paleoclimate reconstruction of the last glacial cycle in the middle latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere. They show the lobate shape and low surface slopes of the former piedmont glaciers that, at the last glacial maximum, spread westward from the Andes into the Valle Central to fill Lago Puyehue, Lago Rupanco, Lago Llanquihue, Seno reloncaví, Golfo de Ancud, and northern Gulfo Corcovado
