J. Ulloa, H. Jimenez Nunez, M.A. Reinhart, and J. Cuevas contributed to the reconnaissance in 1988-1989, which was part of USGS Gilbert Fellowship project with A. Nelson and S. Bartsch-Winkler. The field work in 2006 was supported in part by the United States Agency for International Development (for an Indian Ocean paleotsunami project led by B. Atwater), Geoscience Australia (A. Prendergast), the United States Geological Survey (B. Atwater), and Japan's Active Fault Research Center (Y. Sawai). The work was also made possible by Fondecyt grants 1060227 and 1110848 (to M. Cisternas). M. Lagos contributed GPS data on pit locations in Chanhue. R. Vergara cooked for the 2006 group in a home rented to us by B. Bohle. J. Bourgeois pointed out analogies with washover fans and crevasse splays. Initial versions of the manuscript were reviewed by D. Clark, B. Jaffe, B. MacInnes, U. Glawe, F. Nanayama, C. Peterson, and C.P. Rajendran, and a later version by R. Witter, J. Goff, S. Fujino, and C. Weaver.
