Tarapacá | Pampa del Tamarugal
Location: Reserva Nacional Pampa del Tamarugal. The high groundwater level in this place leads to a very high salt content of the soil. However, it also allows the deep rooting system of the tamarugo (Prosopis tamarugo), which was replanted in this place, to explore the water resources.
