Abstract In a commentary about the paper 'Asynchronous Little Ice Age glacial maximum extent in southeast Iceland' (Geomorphology 114 (2010) 253-260), M. Dabski questioned the validity of the generalized extreme value method and the Bayesian approach in lichenometric dating of the outermost LIA Flaajokull moraines in SE Iceland. This paper responds to these criticisms by explaining the relevance of the method applied and the relevance of the dates obtained.
