... a powerful instrument for dating and correlating distant localities. In this paper, we apply tephra fingerprinting for high-resolution stratigraphic purposes in the upper Miocene portion of the Pisco Formation, which crops out along the southern Peruvian coast. The Pisco Formation diatomaceous strata host...

...) , this situation most likely resulted in a relative increase of the capacity of the Rio Pisco to entrain and transport sediment, leading to the erosion of the previously deposited material. Erosion continued during the succeeding dry period, resulting in the formation of incised channels on the alluvial fans...

... Model crustal cross sections contrained by gravity and seismic refraction data indicate that pre-Cenozoic continental rocks extend to within 50 km of the trench off Mollendo and 20 km off Pisco in southern Peru and to within 30 km of the trench off northern and central Chile. The oceanic plate...
