Magallania (Punta Arenas)

MARTINIC B, Mateo. The eruption of The Giant´s volcano (lautaro) in 1883: Selected considerations. Magallania [online]. 2016, vol.44, n.2, pp.65-68. ISSN 0718-2244.

The historic activity of a volcanic center located at the Andean zone of Southernmost Patagonia (Southern Patagonia Ice Field) is identified as the Lautaro mountain (49°01'S/73° 33'). First recorded from the indigenous tradition (Aónikenk), this has been a matter of concern for historians, explorers and volcanologist that wanted confirmation for the geographic sciences, fact that was achieved in 1960. Nevertheless the research history and records did not count with descriptive evidence of an eruption and this has changed since the recent publication of the memories of the british William H. Greenwood, which allows us to make some comments and suggestions.

Keywords : Patagonia; vulcanism.
