Holocene radiometric dating
So far, only the age of the two youngest moraines can be determined. The youngest moraine HM4b (HM = Holocene moraine), located at an altitude of 3060 m, corresponds to the extension of the glacier in 1876, as reported by Hellmann (1881) and represents the latest glacier advances at the end of the Little Ice Age.

Semiarid Mediterranean mountains are in general very sensitive to global climate warming in terms of deglaciation and permafrost degradation. calculations and correlation with the glacial records or the Veleta cirque we propose a late glacial age for the different moraine stands.
His result was in close agreement with his estimate of the age of the earth.
