Lichenometric-dating studies using the yellow-green Rhizocarpon subgenus at Mueller Glacier in the region of Mt Cook, Southern Alps, New Zealand, reveal a ‘Little Ice Age’ maximum about ad 1725/1730. Differences from previous studies are shown to result from different methods, especially the type of mathematical functions used for calculating the lichenometric dating curves. Previous work also used variable sample sizes, distal moraine slopes, and, to some extent, different fixed points… Expand
