Abstract

Annual-ring diagrams have been prepared for Scots Pine in the Tharandt forest during the 19th century. The fairly constant extreme values show clear correspondences with the variations of precipitation in the area. Ring variations were also studied back to 1690 for Silver Fir and Yew from the...

Abstract

The first part of this bulletin describes the methods used and data obtained in a dendrochronological study of some 30 specimens of Pinus pinea from Ravenna. For some of these trees (with straight stems and regular form) sections were cut, not horizontally as is usual, but transversely, downwards...

Abstract

Using disks cut at a height of 1.3 m. from 34, dominant sample trees of Picea abies and Pinus sylvestris, the influence of climate on diameter increment was investigated for the period 1853-1950. The influence of favourable weather, dry weather, heavy precipitation, fluctuating soil moisture during ...

Abstract

Reviews previous work on the dendrochronology of near-fossil Oaks in Europe, with particular reference to finds in the Danube basin, gives some interim results of studies on specimens collected at Leibi near Neuulm and at Rutzendorf NE of Vienna, and presents and discusses diagrams illustrating the ...

Abstract

Measurements of maximum and minimum density, and early wood and late wood thickness were measured on Swiss alpine trees (mainly Pinus montana, Pinus cembra, Larix decidua, Abies alba, or Picea abies) using X-ray densitometry. Methods for assuring accurate estimates of absolute density are...

Abstract

Dendrochronological scales for Norway spruce and Scots pine in NW Russia are presented for the period 631-1200. The oldest material was from late 8th century log structures excavated at Staraya Ladoga; other material came from Novgorod and Pskov.

Abstract

A set of 23 ring width and max. latewood density chronologies of Pinus sylvestris at sites in Norway, Sweden, Finland and northern USSR was used to estimate mean July-Aug. temperature. Several prediction models were tested; the best results were achieved with a simple 2-variable model in which...
