Abstract

Two relict rock glaciers, which are indicators of a former permafrost environment, were 14Cdated around Mt. Mibudake, southern Japanese Alps, using accelerator mass spectrometry. Three samples for dating were collected from the boundary between the deposit of the north rock-glacier and the underlying bedrock. Two of those samples indicate 11cal ka BP, and the other one indicates 18cal ka BP. A sample dated 10cal ka BP was also taken from the steep frontal slope of the south rock-glacier which fills a cirque bottom. Considering the timing of the cirque formation and the mechanisms of rock-glacier advance, we conclude that the south rock-glacier developed in the Late Glacial, whereas the timing of the north rock-glacier advance was sometime from the Last Glacial Maximum to the early Holocene.
