Record #183601:

Punctuated drainage of an ice-dammed Quaternary lake in southern South America / C.M. Bell.

Title: Punctuated drainage of an ice-dammed Quaternary lake in southern South America / C.M. Bell.
Author(s): Bell, C. M.
Date: 2008.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (2008.), Vol. 90(1) (2008)
Abstract: Examines drainage of predecessor lake to modern lakes Lago General Carrera/Buenos Aires and Lago Cochrane following failure of ice dam joining north and south components of Patagonian ice field around 13,000 years ago. Based on geographical and geological data from Río Las Dunas and adjacent Río Los Maitenes, supplemented by aerial photographs and topographic maps, describes seven stepped lacustrine braid deltas on southeastern shore of Lago General Carrera/Buenos Aires that mark punctuated drainage of predeccessor lake over several thousand years. Reconstructs development of deltas and associated changes in lake drainage and level and infers causes in breaching of ice dams as icefield melted and retreated.
