The Late Cenozoic of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego Book Review:

Written by highly qualified Argentine scientists and scholars, this book focuses on the uninterrupted geological and paleontological 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 paleoclimatic approach. Patagonia has also been a sort of a "paleoclimatic bridge" between the Antarctic Peninsula and the more northerly land masses, 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 monograph 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 scholars

Estuaries Book Review:

Estuaries are productive ecosystems of high ecological value. They are important habitats for various species and those of highest value are protected by national and international conventions. This book highlights possible pollution impacts in a protected estuarine ecosystem, Amvrakikos Gulf, considered as one of the most important wetlands in Greece. In addition, the Changjiang (Yangtze) River is known to contribute significantly to the ecosystems of the Changjiang River estuary and adjacent waters. In this book, some long-term data of freshwater discharge, sediment load, nutrient concentrations and compositions in the river and estuary waters are presented, as well as the long-term response of the ecosystem in the estuary. Moreover, the literature on modern estuarine diatoms from Argentina is revised in order to synthesise the available ecological information and to detect possible modern analogues for Quaternary diatom assemblages. The authors also discuss negative or inverse estuaries, those where seawater is concentrated by the removal of fresh water, in the Northern Gulf of California. The challenges facing the sustainable management of temporarily open/closed estuaries (TOCEs) is addressed as well, critical in some cases because their ecological integrity, biodiversity and nursery function have already been compromised.

Geodynamic Evolution of the Southernmost Andes Book Review:

This book focuses on the strong relation between the tectonic evolution of the Southernmost Andes and their closest southern neighbors, the Scotia Sea and Antarctica. Some episodes are related to processes of global significance such as the opening of the Drake Passage, which is somehow linked to Late Cenozoic cooling. Many of the topics covered in the book are subjects of heated debates; as such, not only the latest data and approaches are presented, but different points of view as well. The chapters examine the interrelation between main geodynamic processes and plate tectonics from a multidisciplinary perspective. This Paleozoic-Cenozoic geodynamic evolution of the Southernmost Andes involved interrelated metamorphic, magmatic, sedimentary, and deformational processes directed by plate tectonics. The main topics cover the evolution of the Rocas Verdes basin and the Cordillera Darwin high-grade metamorphic complex, growth of the Patagonian Batholith, development of the Patagonian Orocline, the opening of the Drake Passage during growth of the Scotia Sea, evolution of the Austral-Magallanes foreland basin and its related fold and thrust belt.

Glaciations in North and South America from the Miocene to the Last Glacial Maximum Book Review:

Improved dating methods have increased our ability to more precisely determine the timing and durations of glaciations. Utilizing glacial and loess deposits, we have compared glaciations that occurred in North and South America in order to determine if events are synchronous or not, to explore forcing mechanisms, and to compare glaciations with cold periods of the Marine Oxygen Isotope stages and the loess/paleosol records of China. Stratigraphic sections containing a variety of glacial deposits, some with interbedded volcanics, as well as loess deposits, were used in reconstructing the glacial history. The Late Pleistocene (Brunhes Chron) Last Glacial Maximum is recognized in mountain and continental areas of North America but only in the mountains of South America. Commonly our comparisons indicate roughly synchronous glaciations on the two continents, whereas other glaciations are more elusive and difficult to compare. Although our comparisons are at low resolutions, the results suggest that Milankovitch forcing is most likely the dominant trigger for hemispheric glaciation modified by local factors.

Evolution c nozo que du bassin de Magellan et tectonique des Andes australes Book Review:

L'extrémité australe de l'Amérique du Sud se situe actuellement dans un contexte cinématique complexe impliquant les plaques Nazca, Antarctique et Scotia. Dans ce secteur, l'histoire compressive andine débute au Crétacé supérieur avec pour conséquences le soulèvement de la cordillère et le développement du bassin, d'avant-pays de Magellan. L'arcature actuelle des Andes australes résulte du développement progressif de l'orocline patagonien associé au fonctionnement d'un décrochement senestre le long de la bordure sud du continent depuis le Crétacé supérieur. A partir de 30 Ma, l'ouverture du passage de Drake entre le continent Sud-américain et la Péninsule Antarctique conduit à la croissance de la plaque Scotia. La subduction de la dorsale du Chili débute à 14 Ma au niveau de la Terre de Feu. Le point triple migre progressivement jusqu'à sa position actuelle à 46°30'S. L'étude structurale et cinématique de la région (analyse de populations de failles) a été réalisée principalement à la transition cordillère/bassin. Elle est complétée par l'analyse de l'imagerie satellitaire et de la topographie numérique, l'interprétation de données de sismique réflexion pétrolière, une étude paléomagnétique, et de la modélisation analogique. Cette étude met en évidence (1) des directions principales de raccourcissement subperpendiculaires à la cordillère tout le long de l'orocline, (2) des composantes décrochantes dextres et senestres le long des secteurs de la cordillère orientés respectivement N-S et E-O, et (3) des rifts néogènes disposés radialement affectant principalement la zone axiale du bassin de Magellan. Ce champ de déformation, compatible avec le contexte actuel, a été comparé à celui obtenu par modélisation analogique d'un orocline simple. Le passage progressif entre la zone de subduction à l'ouest et le décrochement au sud du continent (appelé effet de coin) semble être une condition suffisante au développement de l'essentiel des structures observées

Quaternary Glaciations Extent and Chronology Book Review:

This book is the second of three volumes in which the recent knowledge of the extent and chronology of Quaternary glaciations has been compiled on a global scale. This information is seen as a fundamental requirement, not only for the glacial community, but for the wider user-community of general Quaternary workers. In particular the need for accurate ice-front positions is a basic requirement for the rapidly growing field of palaeoclimate modelling. In order to provide the information for the widest-possible range of users in the most accessible form, a series of digital maps was prepared. The glacial limits were mapped in ArcView, the Geographical Information System (GIS) used by the work group. Included with the publication is a CD with digital maps, showing glacial limits, end moraines, ice-dammed lakes, glacier-induced drainage diversions and the locations of key sections through which the glacial limits are defined and dated. The last deglaciation is also shown in 500 year time-steps. The digital maps in this volume cover the USA and Canada and include Greenland and Hawaii. Both overview maps and more detailed maps at a scale 1: 1,000,000 are provided.
