The Patagonia region of South America has long attracted naturalists and explorers to unravel the mysteries of this spectacular landscape, which in its modern form is closely tied to ongoing plate tectonic processes and dramatic sculpting by Ice Age glaciers.

Join geologist Kirt Kempter on a geologic tour of the region, including highlights such as Torres del Paine National Park, Tierra del Fuego, and several picturesque volcanoes of the southern Andes. He includes helpful maps, field photos, and Google Earth flyovers to enhance the experience and illustrate geologic concepts and interpretations.
