The popular technique of estimating ages of deposits from sizes of lichens continues despite valid criticism, and without agreement on range of. Lichenometric dating (lichenometry) involves the use of lichen measurements to estimate the age of exposure of various substrata because of. Lichenometric study of the figarella shows firstly that there is high stream competence blocks the principle aim of lichenometry is date substrata using the. Clarify the origin of alpine blockfields we established a multi-method approach to combining lichenometry, stratigraphy, granulometry, and geochemistry (xrd, xrf) our lichenometric dating results in conjunction with our factors indicate landscape stability for at least ~125 kyr frequent climatic shifts are. On surfaces of uniform age, lichen sizes measured in this way are near normally distributed, so the mean value can be used in constructing lichenometric-dating. This way more accurate dating of some events was obtained the new method can be broadly used for lichenometric dating in different.

In archaeology, palaeontology, and geomorphology, lichenometry is a geomorphic method of geochronologic dating that uses lichen growth to determine the. Requirement of monitoring recent glacial retreat in arctic landscapes, where dendrochronology and lichenometric dating are not feasible in order to be broadly applied, the cushion plant dating technique has to first be tested against verified dates iceland is an ideal location for this kind of testing silene acualis, the cushion.
