Abstract

During the late Neoproterozoic and Paleozoic times, the Argentine-Chilean Andes, -and since the late Paleozoic the Antarctic Peninsula,- formed part of the southwestern margin of Gondwana. During this period of time, several continental fragments of variable extension and allochtonie were successively accreted to that margin, resulted in six Paleozoic orogenies of different temporal and spatial extension: Pampean (Ediacaran-early Cambrian), Famatinian (Middle Ordovician-Silurian), Chanic (Middle Devonian-early Carboniferous), Ocloyic (Middle Ordovician-Devonian), Gondwanan (Middle Devonian-middle Permian) and Tabarin (late Permian-Triassic). All these orogenies had a collisional character, with the exception of the Tabarin and the Gondwanan south of 38ºS.
