Summary

A selective review of lichenometry as used to date Holocenemoraines in five diverse regions of Alaska and in southeastern Kamchatka suggests that growth curves for this North Pacific areamay be improved by attention to several factors. These includedlichen identification, control point number and distribution,radiocarbon calibration, alternative curve models, andcompatibility of lichen growth rate with climate. Support forcontrol points presented for Kamchatka and published for Alaska areas will benefit from supplementary control at and beyond thebreak from the great growth curve segments of the last centuries.With regard to alternative-linear, logarithmic, and compositecurve-models drawn for the published lichenometric data, the composite [...]
