Between the end of 2019 and April 2020, Janek Walk, Georg Stauch, and Frank Lehmkuhl published together with other co-authors three publications about the coastal alluvial fans in the hyperarid Atacama Desert in northern Chile.

 

The first article deals with the spatial and functional relationships between the alluvial fan morphodynamics and climatic, geologic, and topographic circumstances. It is published in Global and Planetary Change.

The second article, published in Quaternary International, comprises a methodologic comparison of luminescence and electron spin resonance dating of different alluvial fan sediments as well as interbedded marine and aeolian deposits.

The third article, also published in Global and Planetary Change, is the output of a more extensive dating study of the Late Pleistocene coastal alluvial fan activity including its palaeoenvironmental implications.
