Magmatic Activity and Mountain Folding in the Andes of South Mendoza

  • Helge G. Backlund (a1)

Extract

In a series of memoirs by Burckhardt (1), Groeber (2), and Gerth (3), the stratigraphical sequence and structure of the Cordillera of South Mendoza has been lucidly described. On the basis of these memoirs, of my own field observations (12), and of the study of the large collection of rocks made by Dr. Gerth, I shall attempt in this paper to give a picture of the magmatic evolution of this part of the Cordillera of South America (35 to 37 degrees south latitude).
