Canal Errazuriz lies just west of the central Andean Cordillera of southern Chile (Fig. 1). During the last glaciation it was the approximate geographic location of the ice divide for an expansive Andean ice cap and was also the site of late glacial residual ice which persisted until the earliest Holocene. Remnant cirque glaciers are present today to the east of the region, however Holocene sedimentation in the fjords at this location has been dominated by non-glacial fluvial and hemipelagic sedimentation.
