Abstract

Substantial effort has recently been put into the development of climate reconstructions from tree-ring stable carbon isotopes, though the interpretation of long-term trends retained in such timeseries remains challenging. Here we use detrended δ13C measurements in Pinus uncinata treerings, from...

Abstract

Palaeoclimate proxies have shown links between climate changes and volcanic activity. However, not much is known about the impact of volcanic outbursts on growth of lowland trees. We investigate the effect of large volcanic eruptions on the growth rate of trees. The study is based on an unexplored...

Abstract

Dendroclimatic investigations of subfossil Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) from two raised bogs in southern Sweden yielded a continuous floating 1492-year long tree-ring record. By cross-dating with bog-pine chronologies from Lower Saxony, Germany, the South Swedish record was assigned an absolute...

Abstract

This proceedings comprises 14 papers presenting the usefulness of dendrochronology in providing information on scientific questions about the past and to help prepare for the future. These papers focused on growth ring chronology of different trees, indicators of mid-Holocene climate variability,...

Abstract

We present a precipitation reconstruction for the ecotone of Hulunbei'er steppe and Great Xing'an Mountain forest region, Inner Mongolia, based on tree rings of Mongolian pine (Pinus sylvestiris Linnaeus var. mongolica Litvinov) scattered in regional sandy dune forests. The ring-width chronology...

Abstract

Stable isotopes in tree rings have widely been used for palaeoclimate reconstructions since tree rings record climatic information at annual resolution. However, various wood components or different parts of an annual tree-ring may differ in their isotopic compositions. Thus, sample preparation and ...

Abstract

Question: Can investigations of subfossil bog-pine woodlands contribute to the understanding of mire development, especially the influence of climate fluctuations on the fen-bog transition? Location: Lowlands of northwest Germany. Methods: We investigated pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) tree remains...

Abstract

For drought and flood forecasting, it is critical that we understand regional rainfall patterns as well as their potential underlying forcings, particularly in urban regions with greater long-term anthropogenic influences compared to rural areas. To achieve this, three Chinese pine (Pinus...

Abstract

The elevational tree-line change within the transitional zone between boreal forest and Mongolian steppes was quantified for the last millennium. The basic approach included studies along transects and measurements of tree-line positions to identify current, historical, refugee and regeneration...

Abstract

Tree-ring analysis of subfossil Pinus sylvestris L., from nine new peatland sites located beyond the species' current northern limit in Scotland, established a regional chronology called WRATH-9. The chronology has been provisionally dated against Irish pine chronologies and provides the first...
