We are grateful for our collaborators who assisted the seismic and coring campaigns. The late A. Amos, M.M. Bianchi, J. Masaferro, G. Villarosa and the former PROGEBA team from CONICET, Argentina, were instrumental to the starting of our research in Patagonia. For lakes Mascardi and Frías, we thank in particular F. Niessen, A. Lehmann, C. Chondrogianni and K. Ghilardi. The study of Laguna Cari-Laufquen and Lago Cardiel was supported by the PATO Team headed by V. Markgraf and the late K. Kelts. J.P. Bradbury, J.A. McKenzie, A. Schwalb, A. Lüdin, R. Hofmann, M. Beres, J. Captain, J.B. Belardi, R. Goñi, M.A. Gonzalez, B. Ercolano, S. Stine and J. Lezaun assisted the field campaign in these lakes. The tireless efforts of J.D. Moreteau and his crew and the infrastructural support of the Kusanovic family from Estancias La Angostura and La Siberia have been instrumental to the success of the Lago Cardiel project. J.A. Austin Jr, S. Saustrup and M. Wiederspahn (University of Texas, Austin, USA); R. Dunbar, C. Moy and D. Mucciarone (Stanford University, USA), G. González Bonorino and G.G. Bujalesky from CADIC-CONICET (Argentina), and C. Recasens (University of Geneva, Switzerland) contributed to the logistics to accomplish seismic acquisition as well as coring operations in Lago Fagnano. We acknowledge financial support from the Swiss National Foundation (projects NF21-37689.93, NF2100-050862.97/1, NF200021-1006668/1 and NF200020-111928/1 to D. Ariztegui).
