Volcanic Ash-Derived Zircon Geochronology in the Pipanaco Basin of the Sierras Pampeanas, Argentina

Young, Darby E.
2017

The relative timing of tectonic uplifts in the Sierras Pampeanas in western Argentina is poorly understood. The purpose of this study is to constrain the timing of uplift of the mountains around the Pipanaco Basin in this region through zircon geochronology. Basin stratigraphy represents a braided fluvial system with three interbedded volcanic ash-fall units, and is identified as part of the Toro ... read more
