A small cirque glacier is present in a north-east facing cirque on the mountain of Šljeme (2455 m as.l.) in the Durmitor massif, Montenegro. Sediment ridges in front of this glacier are interpreted as moraines and can be attributed to recent glacier activity over the past 130 years. Lichenometry was applied to determine the relative ages of different moraines using Aspicilia calcarea agg. One set of moraines dates from about 1878 AD, whilst another set of inner moraines dates from about 1904 AD. The most recent moraines appear to have formed within the last 11 years in front of an active glacier margin. Copyright © 2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
