Abstract

Nineteen Norwegian grain chests made of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) were analyzed by measuring tree-ring widths on photographs and scanned pictures. Seventeen of the chests were successfully dated by dendrochronology. Two of the dates are corrections of an earlier dating; the ages of these two ...

Abstract

Tree-ring maximum latewood density (MXD) records from Fennoscandia have been widely used to infer regional- and hemispheric-scale mean temperature variability. Here, we explore if MXD records can also be used to infer past variability of summer temperature extremes across Fennoscandia. The first...

Abstract

Hydroclimatological extremes, such as droughts and floods, are expected to increase in frequency and intensity with global climate change. An improved knowledge of its natural variability and the underlying physical mechanisms for changes in the hydrological cycle will help understand the response...

Abstract

Despite the spatially homogenous summer temperature pattern in Fennoscandia, there are large spreads among the many existing reconstructions, resulting in an uncertainty in the timing and amplitude of past changes. Also, there has been a general bias towards northernmost Fennoscandia. In an attempt ...

Abstract

Cell-anatomical studies are a fast growing branch of dendrochronology, since they promise additional environmental proxy information with high temporal resolution. It is unclear, however, how many radial files of tracheids have to be considered to establish reliable wood anatomical time series for...

Abstract

Recent findings indicated spruce from North America and larch from eastern Siberia to be the dominating tree species of Arctic driftwood throughout the Holocene. However, changes in source region forest and river characteristics, as well as ocean current dynamics and sea ice extent likely influence ...

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

The old Sami tradition of collecting pine bark has gradually become forgotten in Norway during the last century, and characteristic markings on old living and dead pine trunks in and near Øvre Dividalen National Park, Central Troms, North Norway long remained a mystery to us. However, the topic has ...

Abstract

Two tree-ring chronologies of stone pine (Pinus cembra L.) and two of Norway spruce (Picea abies Karst.) were constructed on the basis of data from three high-altitude sites in the Trafoi Valley (Central Alps, Italy) to test tree species sensitivity to climate at different sites and to explore the...

Abstract

The climate-growth relationships and the variation of the radial growth of Oxalis-Myrtillus-site type Norway spruce and Scots pine stands in conditions of different cement dust loads were investigated. The climate-growth relationships were studied during the period from 1946 to 2004. The variation...
