Resumen

RODRIGUEZ VALDIVIA, Alan; ALBORNOZ ESPINOZA, Cristián  y  TAPIA TOSETTI, Alejandro. GEOMORPHOLOGY OF THE PUTRE AREA, NORTHERN ANDES OF CHILE: VOLCANIC AND CLIMATE ACTIONINITS MODELING. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2017, n.54, pp.7-20. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812017000300007.

The Putre area is located in a sub-basin at an altitude of3,500 m on the west slope of the Western Andean mountain range (in the northernmost part of Chile), with volcanoes and the climate forming the predominant landforms. This relief is the result of the geological evolution of the Taapaca Volcanic Complex (CVT) whose eruptions have given rise to constructive morpholithologies shaping the sub-basin, and the climate consistently weathering and eroding, leading to forms which resulte primary from gravitational and fluvial processes and secundary from periglacial mechanisms. The existing model recognized both the action exerted by gravitational processes that have resulted in slumps and debris flows, and by fluvial action that has favored the formation of deep and narrow gorges in the area.

Palabras clave : Putre; Taapaca Volcanic Complex; Geomorphology; Landslide.
