Abstract

In the above published article, the following issues have to be corrected: (1) references; (2) text; and (3) figures and tables. The correct versions are given below. Some of the apatite fission track (AFT) data from previous studies were wrongly cited. AFT data originally cited as Letcher (2007) and Deeken (2005) (Diploma thesis) should be referenced as follows: - Pingel, H., Deeken A., Letcher A.J., Coutand I. Alonso R.N., Dumitru T., Riller U., Sobel E.R., Strecker M.R. (in Preparation). Late Cenozoic exhumation and landscape development in the intermontane Pastos Chicos Basin, Puna Plateau, NW Argentina.Also, Deeken (2005) in the reference list is a Diploma thesis and was incorrectly cited as a PhD thesis. (2) Text A revised version of the text correcting the citations is presented below: 6.3.2. Susques Range Pingel et al. (in Prep) reported three AFT ages for the Susques Range (ST-1, ST-2, and ST-3, Fig. 2, Table S2). Letcher (2007) reported Eocene apatite (U–Th)/He ages for the same samples (ST-1, weighted mean of 5 grains, 46.7 ± 3.1Ma; ST-2, weighted mean of 3 grains, 46.3 ± 1.5 Ma; ST-3, weighted mean of 3 grains, 37.9 ± 1.2 Ma; ST-4, weighted mean of 3 grains, 29.4 ± 2.9 Ma). Systematically older AHe ages compared to the AFT ages can be due to contamination of the AHe ages by inclusions or He implantation. 6.3.3. Del Cobre and Tusaquillas Ranges Published cooling ages in this range consist of seven AFT ages (Pingel et al., in Prep) and four apatite (U–Th)/He ages (Letcher, 2007). Pingel et al. (in Prep) reported four AFT ages (SUS-1, SUS-2, SUS-3 and SUS-4, Fig. 10, Table S2) for the central range. According to their results, the central part of the Del Cobre Range (Figs. 5 and 10) experienced cooling through the PAZ between ca. 31 and ca. 37 Ma (Figs. 5 and 10). For the next thrust to the east, Pingel et al. (in Prep) reported three AFT ages (SC-1, SC-3 and SC-4, Figs. 5 and 10, Table S2) and Letcher (2007) reported four apatite (U–Th)/He ages (SC-1, weighted mean of 2 grains, 30.7 ± 2.4 Ma; SC-2, weighted mean of 3 grains, 27.6 ± 0.9 Ma; SC-3, weighted mean of 2 grains, 26.4 ± 1.0 Ma; SC-4, weighted mean of 3 grains, 32.4 ± 2.3 Ma). Our new ages mainly complement the previous ages in the Del Cobre Range and point to the onset of exhumation and erosion between ca. 37–29 Ma in the central part of the range, between ca. 28 and 10 Ma for the next thrust sheet to the east, and rapid exhumation and erosion between ca. 30–25 Ma for the easternmost thrust sheet. 6.3.4. Aguilar Range Two previous studies recorded cooling in the Aguilar Range. Pingel et al. (in Prep) reported cooling between ca. 17 and ca. 23 Ma based on two AFT ages in the eastern part of the range (GA6 and GA7, Fig. 10). Insel et al. (2012) used K-feldspar multi–diffusion domain modeling to propose a rapid cooling event (ca. 150-100 °C) driven by exhumation and erosion in the Aguilar Range at ca. 35-25 Ma. Our AHe ages overlap and are slightly older than the AFT ages reported by Pingel et al. (in Prep). (3) Figures and tables Figures 2 and 10 and table S2 included the aforementioned citations. The corrected version of these figures and table are below: [Figure presented] Corrected version of Fig. 2. Geologic map of the northern Puna plateau. [Figure presented] Corrected version of Fig. 10. Summary of the AFT and AHe ages for the northern Puna at 23–24 ◦S. [Table presented] Corrected version of Table S2: Compiled AFT data for Puna plateau.
