|Abstrakt EN:||Glacial landforms (nine moraine ridges, five rock glaciers and one glacially rounded mound) in the Roháčská Valley were mapped and tested by Schmidt Hammer test (SHT) in order to establish their relative chronology. Three morphostratigraphic units were identified according to the landform morphology and the results of the SHT. The suggested chronology was compared with chronology based on 10Be exposure ages in the Roháčská Valley (Engel et al., in review). Some of the glacial landforms were tested both by SHT and by 10Be exposure age dating. This procedure enable the comparison of both chronologies as well as evaluation of SHT potential as a dating tool. The comparison of both chronologies shows that SHT enable rough estimation of the relative chronology (three distinguishable stages – maximal ice extension (MIE), late glacial re-advance and specific rock glacier phase).|
