A substantially improved reconstruction of the Late Pleistocene-Holocene morphological and geological history of the Paraguayan Chaco and the Argentine Pampa Plain (Chaco-Pampa Plain) is presented. Due to the vast extension of the area, satellite images are the clue to synthesize previous and new multidisciplinary geoscientific results to set up a more reliable regional picture. For this synoptic view the interpretation of remote sensing data was complemented by ground investigation and physical age determinations. Luminescence ages...
