Abstract

A new approach to lichenometry, employing the single largest lichens on each boulder in a large sample, has recently been used to reconstruct the pattern of late-Holocene avalanche activity in southern Norway. The number of very large lichens is used to predict the form of the equilibrium distribution, which is then removed, leaving a corrected distribution which reflects the age-frequency of surface boulders deposited during the Little Ice Age. The results confirm that maximum avalanche activity occured during the 19th century
