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

Sub-fossil wood is often affected by the decaying process that introduces uncertainties in the measurement of oxygen and carbon stable isotope composition in cellulose. Although the cellulose stable isotopes are widely used as climatic proxies, our understanding of processes controlling their...

Abstract

Annually resolved and absolutely dated tree-ring chronologies are the most important proxy archives to reconstruct climate variability over centuries to millennia. However, the suitability of tree-ring chronologies to reflect the "true" spectral properties of past changes in temperature and...

Abstract

Precise dating of the year of felling is one intended outcome of dendrochronology. However, occasionally some or all sapwood rings might be missing, either due to deterioration or because they were carved off, or for some other reason. Consequently, while heartwood is preserved, sapwood might be...

Abstract

The population of trees from the superior limit of forest vegetation can offer important information about the tree's answer to disturbance factors. The research is based on 636 individual stone-pine (Pinus cembra) growth series from Calimani Mountains. The growth change method was used to...

Abstract

This study is located in two neighboring mountain sites, Rarău and Giumalău in Bucovina area. Here, were made four dendrochronological series, two series on spruce and one on fir and stone pine. The studies related a tight connection and a significantly correlation between radial growth and studied ...

Abstract

The development of dendrochronological time series in order to analyze climate-growth relationships usually involves first a rigorous selection of trees and then the computation of the mean tree-growth measurement series. This study suggests a change in the perspective, passing from an analysis of...

Abstract

Introduction: In the context of climate change, assessing climate-growth relationships is of high importance in order to understand how forest ecosystems evolve and to test climate models at regional scale. Objectives: This study aims to identify the climate variables that explain most of the...

Abstract

Tree-ring width and glacier mass balance are two highly sensitive climatic proxies which are often used as indicators of biological and geophysical changes in high-altitude ecosystems. Tree-ring data have been widely used to reconstruct past temperatures and also to reconstruct past glacier mass...
