Abstract

Height-increment and tree-ring width data of Scots pine from northern Fennoscandia were updated and their sample replication increased considerably. Standard chronologies as well as low-frequency chronologies were built and compared during their common period in AD 745-2007. The two chronologies...

Abstract

New data have allowed us to extend a previous height-increment chronology of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) at the northern Fennoscandian timberline 817 years backwards in time, from 1561 to 745. Our final transfer model accounts for 31% of the dependent instrumental (mean June-August)...

Abstract

Annual height increments of 35 Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) trees from the northern timberline (68°30′N, 27°30′E, 220 m a.s.l., Laanila, North Finland) and monthly climate data from two meteorological stations, Sodankylä (from 1908 to present) and Ivalo (from 1958 to present) were used in...

Abstract

For a long time, tree-rings have been thought of as containing almost no variation at timescales of centuries and millennia, i.e. at low frequencies. Here, we show that this might be an issue of data analysis rather than an actual lack of variability. A data set of subfossil and living Scots pines...

Abstract

Tree-ring standardization methods were compared. Traditional methods along with the recently introduced approaches of regional curve standardization (RCS) and power-transformation (PT) were included. The difficulty in removing non-climatic variation (noise) while simultaneously preserving the...

Abstract

This work seeks to analyse the importance of summer-temperatures on the tree-ring growth of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) during the past three centuries. Three living-tree chronologies, subfossil pine chronology and one composite tree-ring chronology were constructed from latitudinal and...

Abstract

We performed a spatiotemporal analysis of a network of 21 Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) ring-width chronologies in northern Fennoscandia by means of chronology statistics and multivariate analyses. Chronologies are located on both sides (western and eastern) of the Scandes Mountains (67°N-70°N,...

Abstract

Nine Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) tree-ring-width chronologies were compared regarding growth variability and response to climate along a gradient of oceanicity-continentality at 62-64°N in central Fennoscandia (Norway, Sweden and Finland). The study revealed higher growth variance and stronger...

Abstract

Midsummer (July) temperatures are reconstructed for the last 7500 years using the long ring-width chronology of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) from northern Finland. The chronology was built using regional curve standardization (RCS), which allows for long term (low-frequency) variability to be...

Abstract

This paper reviews the development of the current 'supra-long' pine (Pinus) chronology for northern Finnish Lapland. In the forest-tundra ecotone region of northern Finnish Lapland over 250 samples from living Scots pines (Pinus sylvestris) and over 1700 samples of subfossil pines have been...
