Record #172297:

The Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) glacier cover of the Aconcagua group and adjacent massifs in the Mendoza Andes (South America) / Matthias Kuhle.

Title: The Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) glacier cover of the Aconcagua group and adjacent massifs in the Mendoza Andes (South America) / Matthias Kuhle.
Author(s): Kuhle, Matthias.
Date: 2004.
Publisher: Amsterdam: Elsevier
In: Quaternary glaciations - extent and chronology : Part III South America, Asia, Australia, Antarctica. (2004.),
Abstract: Discusses glacial limits investigated during 1980 glacial geological and geomorphological mapping project in three massifs of Mendoza Andes; Cerros Aconcagua, Tupungato and Juncal. Summarises reconstruction of glacier extent and thickness, presenting 12 valley- and glacier- cross profiles of Mendoza glacier system and ten illustrative photos. As well as Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) extent, differentiates five Late-Glacial readvances. Suggests LGM equlibrium line altitude was c. 1400 m lower than present one. Complementary digital maps on CD included with volume.
