Background

Three main N-S trending geomorphic zones constitute the study area: the Coastal Cordillera, Central Depression and the western Andean flank rising to the Precordillera (Fig. 1). Due to the widespread coincidence in  direction of these zones with climate zoning (particularly between 19º and 23ºS, Fig. 1) and/or the source areas of their sediments, the Earth surface features and sediments in the Costal Cordillera have the greatest propensity to record the history of extreme hyperaridity and those in the Central Depression and along the western Andean Flank the precipitation fluctuations through time in the Precordillera.
