  • The retreat of Tien Shan glaciers (Kyrgyzstan) since the Little Ice Age estimated from aerial photographs, lichenometric and historical data
  • Aerial photography ; Climatic variation ; Geomorphological map ; Glacier ; Glacier retreat ; Historical geography ; Kyrgyzstan ; Lichenometry ; Little ice age ; Map ; Moraine ; Tien Shan ; Years 1980-89
  • The retreat of 293 glaciers in the Tien Shan Mountains from their maximum extent during the Little Ice Age (LIA) is estimated using aerial photographs from 1980 to 1985 and maps at a scale of 1:25 000, constructed during period 1956-1990. Two
  • indices of changes are used : the linear distance from the glacier terminus to its Little Ice Age moraine and the difference in absolute elevation of the terminus and the moraine. Historical information about the front positions of glaciers in the 1880s
  • to the 1930s was used as an indirect control of remote sensing data. The age of moraines in key regions was estimated by lichenometry.
  • Lichenometric dating of little Ice Age glacier activity in the central British Columbia Coast Mountains, Canada
  • British Columbia ; Canada ; Dating ; Glacial features ; Glacier fluctuation ; Lichenometry ; Little ice age ; Mountain ; Palaeo-environment
  • The Little Ice Age behaviour of glaciers in the central British Columbia Coast Mountains was described by conducting lichenometric surveys of Rhizocarpon spp. found on recently deposited moraines in the Kitimat and Pacific ranges. The timing
  • of these moraine-building episodes corresponds closely to the intervals of glacier expansion recorded in complementary studies in the region. These findings indicate that most glaciers in the region reached their maximum downvalley Little Ice Age extent prior
  • The Little Ice Age : re-evaluation of an evolving concept
  • Climate ; Climatic variation ; Concept ; Glacier ; Land atmosphere interaction ; Little ice age ; Model ; Ocean atmosphere interaction ; Palaeoclimatology
  • This review focuses on the development of the Little Ice Age as a glaciological and climatic concept, and evaluates its current usefulness in the light of new data on the glacier and climatic variations of the last millennium and of the Holocene
  • . It is concluded that the concept of a Little Ice Age will remain useful only by : continuing to incorporate the temporal and spatial complexities of glacier and climatic variations as they become better known; reflecting improved understanding of the Earth
  • Effects of the Little Ice Age on avalanche boulder tongues in the French Alps (Massif des Ecrins)
  • Alpes du Sud ; Avalanche ; France ; Glacial features ; Hautes-Alpes ; Lichenometry ; Little ice age ; Palaeo-ecology ; Palaeo-environment
  • Lichens of the subspecies Rhizocarpon geographicum were measured on 25 avalanches boulder tongues in the Massif des Ecrins to elucidate the Little Ice Age history of avalanche activity. According to the results, the avalanche activity
  • was at a maximum before AD 1650 and between AD 1730 and 1830. The relatively good correspondence between avalanche boulder tongue and glacier behaviour in the Massif des Ecrins to climatic variation which occurred since the Little Ice Age confirms that avalanche

  • Lichenometric studies from four glaciers in Northern Iceland are used to determine the dates of their Little Ice Age maxima. In all cases these date to the last half of the nineteenth century and probably marked the maximum Neoglacial extent
  • Re-dating the moraines at Skálafellsjökull and Heinabergsjökull using different lichenometric methods : implications for the timing of the Icelandic Little Ice Age maximum
  • Climatic variation ; Dating ; Geochronology ; Glacier ; Glacier fluctuation ; Iceland ; Lichenometry ; Little ice age ; Moraine ; Nineteenth Century
  • During 2003, 12 000 lichens were measured on 40 moraine fragments of both glaciers to provide surface age proxies. The results reveal that the choice of lichen dating curve has a significant impact on the estimated timing of Little Ice Age (LIA
  • ) maxima. An early to mid-19th century LIA maximum at both glaciers, as determined in this study, accords well with other emerging evidence (Icelandic geochronology reconstructions, sea-ice and NAO records). This indicates that the often-cited late 19th
