This field excursion provides the opportunity to examine the geomorphological processes responsible of landscape evolution of the Central Andes through the most classic section located at 32º S. It aims to understand spatial and temporal relation between Quaternary glaciations and Holocene huge collapses occurred along the Mendoza river valley. During the trip we will visit the classic Pleistocene drifts and landslide events discussing new findings about these chaotic deposits as well as their features and chronologies.
