Apatite (U–Th)/He thermochronology from palaeosurface-bounded vertical transects collected in deeply incised river valleys with >2 km of relief, as well as geomorphic analysis, are used to examine the timing of uplift of the Frontal Cordillera and its relation to the evolution of the proximal portions of the Andean foreland between 32° and 34°S latitude. The results of apatite (U–Th)/He (AHe) analyses are complex. However, the data show positive age-elevation trends, with higher elevation samples yielding older AHe ages than samples at lower elevation. Slope breaks occur at c. 25 Ma in both profiles, separating very slow cooling and or...
