Resumen

SOTO BAUERLE, María Victoria et al. Relación entre el cambio de uso del suelo en la cuenca del Aconcagua y su litoral arenoso correlativo: Chile central. Rev. geogr. Norte Gd. [online]. 2011, n.50, pp. 187-202. ISSN 0718-3402.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34022011000300011.

In the Aconcagua basin the modernization and intensification of land use have resulted both in an agricultural conversion, and the increase in area cultivated. This process has been very intense as far that have entered new areas beyond the limits of the valley and towards sloping ground. This signals changes in land use over the vegetation coverage models. The analysis of the geomorphology of the coastline in detail, accounts for the occurrence of transformations on the beach and dunes that are spatially less significant, but evolutionarily important, since they show a sediment feeding, which could be correlated with changes in vegetation cover in the basin.

Palabras llave : Land use change; sediment input; coastal sand dunes.
