Abstract

Other authors [e.g. P. Mikola in FA 24, 129] have indicated the special interest of tree-ring studies near the altitudinal or latitudinal tree lines; growth there is highly dependent on summer temperatures. Hitherto it has been difficult to reconstruct past temperature regimes from tree-ring data...

Abstract

The intention of this research was to explore whether dendroclimatological relationships could be used to reconstruct long-term proxy records of 'Little Ice Age' glacier mass balance changes in the southern Coast Mountains of British Columbia. Tree-ring width chronologies from the Mt Waddington...

Russian papers on dendrochronology and dendroclimatology [transl. and ed. Fletcher, J.M., and Linnard, W.].: Fletcher, J. M.; Linnard, W. (Translators and Editors): Russian papers on dendrochronology and dendroclimatology: 1962, 1968, 1970, 1972., 1977, pp 38-123
Abstract

The current state-of-the-art of tree-ring analysis and densitometry is still mainly limited to two dimensions and mostly requires proper treatment of the surface of the samples. In this paper we elaborate on the potential of helical X-ray computed tomography for 3D tree-ring analysis....

Abstract

Wood samples, each extending over 3 annual rings of a specimen of Pinus radiata from Hamilton, New Zealand, were separated into cellulose and lignin, and the samples burned to produce CO2 which was measured in a mass spectrometer. The variations obtained in the isotopic ratios of the carbon ( delta ...

Abstract

We had the opportunity to collect valuable wooden core samples from historic monasteries, temples, and secular buildings in 4 regions of High Asia, namely Dolpo (Nepal), ancient Nyangpo, Gyalrong/Minyag, and Lhasa and surroundings (all on the Tibetan Plateau, China). Tree species collected for...

Abstract

We have observed Δ14C concentrations in the northern hemisphere temperate region in the bomb pulse period, using cross-dated tree ring samples. The tree-ring samples were taken from one 70-year-old and two 50-year-old red pines (Pinus densiflora) on Mt Chiak, Korea and from a 50-year-old red pine (...

Abstract

Questions: How did an initial tree harvest in 1894 influence the spatial and temporal patterns of Pinus ponderosa recruitment? How do these patterns compare to our understanding of P. ponderosa stand dynamics prior to Euro-American settlement? How might spatial pattern information, particularly...

Abstract

Spring Valley, Nevada, is one of several areas proposed for the pumping and export of ground-water to Las Vegas by the Southern Nevada Water Authority. Long-term annual-to-decadal variability of water supply in the region is not well understood, so tree-ring records were used to develop a longer...

Abstract

Radiocarbon dating and dendrochronological analyses of Larix decidua, Pinus cembra and Picea abies stems found in a lake near Grächen, Switzerland, permitted reconstruction of phases of regeneration and decline within 4 floating chronologies. The trees were from a period between 6500 and 1000 BP....
