Abstract

A multidisciplinary approach has allowed the reconstruction of Late Pleistocene and Holocene lake fluctuations in the Lake Titicaca basin. Three high lake levels (prior to 25/28 kyr BP, between 14 and 10.5 kyr BP and from 0.4 kyr BP) and two severe droughts (25/28 and 14 kyr BP and 10.5 and 0.4 kyr BP) are the main paleohydrological characteristics of the Lake Titicaca evolution.
