Record #185623:

Testing the size-frequency-based lichenometric dating curve on Fláajökull moraines (SE Iceland) and quantifying lichen population dynamics with respect to stone surface aspect / Maciej Babski.

Title: Testing the size-frequency-based lichenometric dating curve on Fláajökull moraines (SE Iceland) and quantifying lichen population dynamics with respect to stone surface aspect / Maciej Babski.
Author(s): Babski, Maciej.
Date: 2007.
In: Jökull. (2007.), Vol. 57 (2007)
Abstract: Presents size-frequency approach to lichenometric dating of moraines of Fláajökull, a southern outlet of Vatnajökull. Tests recently published lichenometric dating curve for SE Iceland, using 3877 thalli of Rhizocarpon agg. measured on ridges of five moraines deposited since Little Ice Age maximum. Describes reduction method used to exclude exceptionally large thalli. Correlates results with earlier dating of same moraines, confirming late-19th- century timing of LIA maximum. Reports consistent differences between size-frequency gradients of lichen populations on proximal (relative to ice flow), distal and upper sides of stones and discusses environmental factors responsible.
