Antarctic Peninsula & Tierra del Fuego : 100 years of Swedish-Argentine scientific cooperation at the end of the world : proceedings of "Otto Nordenskjöld's Antarctic Expedition of 1901-1903 and Swedish scientists in Patagonia : a symposium", held in Buenos Aires, La Plata and Ushuaia, Argentina, March 2-7, 2003 by Jorge Rabassa( )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This symposium, held in Argentina in March 2003, commemorates Otto Nordenskjold's 1901 expedition, and pays tribute to the Swedish and Argentinian explorers who took on the challenge of early fieldwork in Patagonia and Antarctica. This theme is extended to include recent fieldwork in the natural sciences in the Archipelago of Tierra del Fuego, the Antarctic Peninsula and the sub-Antarctic seas, and celebrates the fruitfulness of continuing Swedish-Argentinian scientific cooperation."--Jacket
The Late Cenozoic of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego by P Giresse( )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by highly-qualified Argenitne scientists and scholars, this book focuses on the uninterrupted geological and palaeontological record of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego since the Miocene-Pliocene boundary to the arrival of Man and Modern Times. This region is an outstanding area for research, with significant interest at the international level. It provides an updated overview of the scientific work in all related fields with a strong palaeoclimatic approach. Patagonia has also been a sort of a "palaeoclimatic bridge" between the Antartic Peninsula and the more northerly landmasses, since the final opening of the Drake Passage in the Middle Miocene. Timely and comprehensive, The Late Cenozoic of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego is the only monographic book written in English. * One-stop resource for paleontological information of the Late Cenozoic of Patagonia * Covers 5 million years in the uninterrupted history of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego * Comprehensive coverage of the region written by highly-qualified Argentine scientists and scholar
Gondwana landscapes in southern South America : Argentina, Uruguay and southern Brazil by Jorge Rabassa( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents extensive and new information on the geomorphology of cratonic areas of southern South America. It includes valuable data relating to recurrent controversies in general geomorphology beyond the boundaries of South America and reveals the great need to integrate many different aspects of geomorphology in regional studies. With the focus on ancient landscapes and especially on planation surfaces it addresses the question of what processes could form such huge features, and how they can be preserved for so long. Many of the papers include maps of planation surfaces or other geomorphic units. The volume brings together an up-to-date, state-of-the-art collection of information on South American geomorphology, and shows beyond doubt that geomorphology is on the same time scale as global tectonics, biological evolution and major climate change. Some of the papers describe ancient geomorphological features of areas that have never been studied or published before, while others describe regions which are totally unknown to the public. The scope of the book extends from tropical latitudes north of the Tropic of Capricorn, south to freezing Patagonia in the "roaring fifties", more than 3,500 km from north to south. Including over one thousand citations from geological and geomorphological literature, this volume will serve as a starting point for a whole new phase of studies of the fascinating landscape history of southern South America

A selection of contributions to two separate meetings of the INQUA-Commission on Genesis and Lithology of Quaternary Deposits held in 1981 in the United States and in 1982 in Argentina.

Marine Isotope Stage 3 in southern South America, 60 KA B.P.-30 KA B.P. by Germán Mariano Gasparini( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents isotope data reflecting changes in temperature derived from core samples in South America. Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) is examined in detail with respect to Stage 3. With over 20 chapters, this detailed treatise discusses high climatic variability, paleoclimatic events, Dansgaard-Oeschger cycles, continental vertebrates, sea level changes, vegetation and climate changes based on pollen records, and the non-Amazon landscape and fauna from 65 to 20 ka B.P. The book also looks at the earth's magnetic field and climate change during MIS 3 and MIS 5 and presents a comparison between both stages with respect to marine deposits in Uruguay. With case studies drawn from Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay this book presents research from the some of the worlds experts in this field
Latin American heritage : interdisciplinary dialogues on Brazilian and Argentinian case studies by Fabiana Lopes da Cunha( )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on Brazil, this book approaches the term 'heritage' from not only a historical and architectural point of view, but also considers its artistic, archaeological, natural, ethnological and industrial aspects.... As an outcome of the First Heritage International Symposium, this unique book explores a variety of heritage dialogues, pursuing global and specific approaches, and combining different views, perceptions and senses."--Back cover
Advances in geomorphology and Quaternary studies in Argentina : proceedings of the Sixth Argentine Geomorphology and Quaternary Studies Congress by Jorge Rabassa( )

The congress included special sessions, symposia, invited lectures and posters on the following topics: Quaternary stratigraphy and geochronology, paleontology (diatoms, mollusks, foraminifera, palynology, phytoliths, paleobotany, vertebrates), dendrochronology, climate change, paleoclimate, Pampean Quaternary paleolimnology, paleomagnetism, environmental magnetism, hydrogeochemical processes, geoarchaeology, geomorphology, structural geology and neotectonics, paleosurfaces, volcanism, geological hazards, assets, geomorphosites, and digital mapping. The Scientific Committee of the Congress has selected the papers published in this volume from more than 150 contributions in many different disciplines
Volcanic landscapes and associated wetlands of lowland Patagonia( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the most relevant basaltic plateau exposures in the provinces of Neuquén (northern Patagonia) and Santa Cruz (southern Patagonia), and analyzes their geomorphological and morphometric characteristics. The existence of wetland ecosystems near the volcanic plateaus is quantified, thus providing indexes that describe the quantitative relationships between these landscape features. These indexes also make it possible to estimate the development of these wetlands in non-surveyed areas, opening the door for studying remote, isolated areas by means of remote sensing images. In turn, the book proposes a numerical classification system for this type of landscape that summarizes the main geomorphological and hydrological characteristics
