Abstract

Geomorphology and fluvial sedimentology indicate oscillations of climatic regimen during the Upper Quaternary in the Bolivian Andes area. Coarse deposits and active erosion are correlated with tropical summer rains. Organic silty deposits and weak erosion are correlated with more equally distributed precipitations during the year. The climatic regime fluctuated with a periodicity of about 2000-3000 yr.-English summary
