Abstract

The dendrochronological use of the parameter maximum density (MXD) in Pinus Sylvestris L., at high latitudes, has provided valuable insights into past summer temperature variations. Few long MXD chronologies, from climatically coherent regions, exist today, with the exception being in northern...

Abstract

Although European part of Russia is the largest forest-covered part of Europe, dendroclimatic data for high-resolution climate reconstructions are still scarce in this region. Climatic response of 62 tree-ring width chronologies of pine (Pinus sylvestris), spruce (Picea abies, Picea obovata) and...

Abstract

A set of 23 ring width and max. latewood density chronologies of Pinus sylvestris at sites in Norway, Sweden, Finland and northern USSR was used to estimate mean July-Aug. temperature. Several prediction models were tested; the best results were achieved with a simple 2-variable model in which...
