Dendrochronology and lichenometry : colonization, growth rates and dating of geomorphological events on the east side of the North Patagonian Icefield, Chile

Auteurs :

HARRISON, S.

Description :
This paper highlights the importance for dating accuracy of initial studies of delay before colonization for both trees and lichens and tree age below core height, particularly in recently deglaciated terrain where colonization and growth rates may vary widely due to differences in micro-environment. It demonstrates how dendrochronology and lichenometry can be used together in an assessment of each other's colonization and growth rates, and then cross-correlated to provide a supportive dating framework. This work should produce more accurate dating of recent glacier fluctuations around the North Patagonia Icefield.
