Abstract

Tree-rings can provide continuous yearly paleoclimatic records for regions or periods of time with no instrumental climate data. However, different species respond to different climate parameters with, for example, some sensitive to moisture and others to temperature. Here, we describe four common...

Abstract

Two subfossil pine (Pinus sylvestris) chronologies relating to the third and sixth millennia BC have been completed from 7 raised bog sites in the north and west of Ireland. The chronologies are replicated by trees from several sites and the more recent chronology is dated to 3451-2569 BC by cross...

Abstract

Tephra-linked pollen and dendrochronological studies were performed on mid-Holocene subfossil peats and pines and two lowland raised bogs (Garry Bog and Sluggan Bog) in Northern Ireland. The results demonstrated that at these sites, contrary to recent findings in the north of Scotland, there was no ...
