Abstract

Ongoing climate change strongly affects high-elevation environments in the European Alps, influencing the cryosphere and the biosphere and causing widespread retreat of glaciers and changes in biomes. Nevertheless, high-elevation areas often lack long meteorological series, and global datasets...

Abstract

Standing dead trees (snags) play important roles in forest ecology by storing carbon as well as providing habitats for many species. Moreover, snags preserved for hundreds of years can provide useful data to extend tree-ring chronologies used for climatological and ecological studies beyond the...

Abstract

Despite the spatially homogenous summer temperature pattern in Fennoscandia, there are large spreads among the many existing reconstructions, resulting in an uncertainty in the timing and amplitude of past changes. Also, there has been a general bias towards northernmost Fennoscandia. In an attempt ...

Abstract

The inexpensive Blue Intensity proxy has been considered a complement or surrogate to maximum latewood density (MXD), but is associated with biases from differential staining between sapwood and heartwood and also between deadwood samples and living-wood samples that compromise centennial-scale...

Abstract

The dendrochronological use of the parameter maximum density (MXD) in Pinus Sylvestris L., at high latitudes, has provided valuable insights into past summer temperature variations. Few long MXD chronologies, from climatically coherent regions, exist today, with the exception being in northern...

Abstract

In Scandinavia, dendrochronological reconstructions of past climate have mostly been based on tree-ring data from forests in which there has been, supposedly, very little or no human impact. However, human land use in sub-alpine forests has a substantially longer history and more profound effects...

Abstract

Despite promising research in the 1980 s showing the potential of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) for the reconstruction of past summer temperatures in the Scottish Highlands, little dendroclimatic work has been attempted in this region since. This reflects, in part, the limited number of sparsely ...

Abstract

Living and subfossil Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) sampled close to the present treeline in the central Scandinavian Mountains were used to build a continuous 1091-year long tree-ring-width chronology, spanning from AD 909 to 1998. Summer temperatures of the growth year had the highest influence on ...

Abstract

Not only do high-latitude tree-ring data reveal minor and major Holocene climatic variation, but the distribution in time of subfossil trees provides information about former tree-line fluctuation. Over 152 samples of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) were collected and measured from lake Lilla...

Abstract

Pine [Pinus sp.] trees, recovered from a peat bog in south-central Sweden, are used to develop a continuous, but "floating", 200-year tree-ring chronology. By wiggle matching high-precision 14C determinations against the radiocarbon calibration curve, the chronology is positioned at 1695-1496 BC...
