Title(s):Main Title: The Guanillos fan complex – implications for the morphogenesis of Atacama’s coastal alluvial fans
Description(s):Abstract: Compared to the interior alluvial fans at the western piedmont of the Andes in northern Chile the coastal alluvial fans emerging from the Coastal Cordillera to the Pacific Ocean are younger and more active. However, neither the dependency of their evolution on climatic and tectonic controls, nor the frequency and magnitude of the primary constructing processes are as yet well understood. To fill this gap, detailed investigations were carried out at an alluvial fan complex at Guanillos (70°10.5’ W, 21°58’ S). The complex represents a multi-phased sedimentary system situated within the latitudinal core of the hyperarid Atacama Desert. Characterization and parametrization of the micro- to mesoscale surface morphology enables a morphostratigraphic distinction between six to seven fan generations. Combined with first 10Be exposure, 14C, and OSL ages, a preliminary absolute morphochronology of the Guanillos alluvial fan is provided. Finally, based on the correlation between the newly established morphochronology and published palaeoenvironmental proxies, driving controls for the coastal alluvial fan activity shall be deciphered.
