Atacama – the treasury of Chile
The Atacama desert is located in northern Chile between the coastal cordillera and the Andes. Climatically it lies in the area of influence of the subtropical high pressure area and is determined by the location between the cold Humboldt Current and the high mountains of the Central Andes. Anticyclonic air movements during the high pressure prevailing for most of the year together with the temperature inversion over the cold water on the coast allow practically no precipitation in the desert. A brief heavy rain only falls once every few years.
Nevertheless, the Atacama is extremely valuable and well developed for Chile: an infinite number of natural resources are stored here. Around the area, Chile waged the saltpeter war 1879–83 against Bolivia and Peru. After all, the saltpetre was stored directly under the surface and could be mined with little effort. The export of the salt, which is important for the manufacture of fertilizers and ammunition, filled the Chilean treasury before the First World War; until the beginning of the 20th century, Chile had the worldwide monopoly for the trade in saltpetre. At present, iodine production has become more important, around two thirds of the world’s needs come from the Atacama Desert.
The world’s largest copper mine is located in the center of the Atacama at an altitude of 3,000 m near Chuquicamata. The open pit has the shape of a huge Roman amphitheater; it is around 4.5 km long, 2.5 km wide and 700 m deep. About 10 kg of pure copper can be obtained from 1 t of the raw material. Around 600,000 t of copper are extracted here every year. The metal is brought to the coast by rail and shipped there. Check petwithsupplies to see Chile Travel Guide.
The coastal cordillera (1,000–2,000 m above sea level) sinks in the Great North eastward to the rubble-filled basin of the Pampa del Tamarugal (800–1,000 m above sea level); the Hochkordillere of the salt lakes interspersed plateaux of the Puna de Atacama (2000-4500 meters above sea level) is surmounted by active volcanoes (Ojos del Salado 6893 m above sea level, Llullaillaco m 6739 above sea level).
In the north of central Chile, the central zone of the country, the coastal cordillera forms short, up to over 2,000 m high chains or plateau-like ridges. In the longitudinal chains of the high cordillera, the height of the peaks (6,900–3,000 m above sea level) and passes (3,900–1,900 m above sea level) decreases to the south. There are also volcanoes here (Maipo 5 290 m above sea level). The central longitudinal depression consists of river embankments and volcanic material (200–500 m above sea level). – In southern central Chile (Little South), the longitudinal valley is broken up into individual basins by mountain ranges and ends in the Gulf of Reloncaví. The coastal mountains reach up to 1 000 m above sea level, the high cordillera up to 3 400 m above sea level (it includes the Llaima volcanoes3 125 m, Villarrica 2 840 m and Osorno 2 660 m above sea level).
In southern Chile (Great South, essentially West Patagonia) the Great Long Valley continues under the sea; the coastal cordillera is divided into mountainous archipelagos (Chiloé, Chonos archipelago), the high cordillera is cut up by numerous fjords (canales), such as the Bakerfjord and the Strait of Magellan. In the inner mountain parts from around 46 ° to 52 ° south latitude there are two large contiguous firn and ice fields (Patagonian inland ice).
One consequence of the ongoing volcanic and tectonic activity are earthquakes that frequently hit the whole country, especially central Chile. The wealth of natural resources is closely related to volcanism and mountain formation (copper ore mining in northern and central Chile, iron ore deposits near La Serena, saltpetre deposits in northern Chile).
The mostly short, east-west running rivers have increasing water flow from north to south and are used for irrigation in the Little North and northern central Chile. The ice age glaciation has created a number of larger lakes (Villarrica, Ranco, Puyehue, Llanquihue) at the western foot of the high Andes in southern central Chile.
