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

Steep decline in forest fires about a century ago occurred in coniferous forests over large areas in North America and Fennoscandia. This poorly understood phenomenon has been explained by different factors in different regions. The objective of this study is to evaluate the validity of the four...

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

Dendrochronological and sclerochronological records are mean series of arboreal and molluscan increments that are correctly aligned in time by rigorous dating. These records of tree rings and annual shell-growth increments exhibit climate signals that can be used to reconstruct fluctuations and...

Abstract

Tree-ring series collected from different parts of Arctic (Fennoscandia, Kola Peninsula and Northern Siberia) are investigated by means of the multi-taped method (MTM) of spectral analysis. Results of spectral analysis allow us to select the main periods of solar variability (22-, 30-33- and...

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

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

Ten potential proxy measures of past climate were recovered from Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) at three sites on a latitudinal transect close to the pine limit in northern Finland (earlywood, latewood and annual ring width; earlywood, latewood and maximum density; stable carbon isotope ratio;...

Abstract

This editorial introduces a special issue of The Holocene containing 12 papers which represent highlights from a European Commission research project: 'Analysis of Dendrochronological Variability and Associated Natural Climates in Eurasia - the last 10 000 years' (ADVANCE-10K). The focus is on the...
