Abstract

The exploitation of copper ore deposits of the northern Greywacke Zone was initiated by the implementation of metallurgic technologies in the Eastern Alps thousands of years ago. This multi-proxy study aimed to detect prehistoric mining phases in the vicinity of a prominent copper ore deposit in...

Abstract

The evolution of a debris-flow cone depends on a multitude of factors in the hydrogeomorphic system. Investigations of debris-flow history and cone dynamics in highly active catchments therefore require an integrative approach with a temporal and spatial resolution appropriate for the goals of the...

Abstract

Annually resolved and absolutely dated tree-ring chronologies are the most important proxy archives to reconstruct climate variability over centuries to millennia. However, the suitability of tree-ring chronologies to reflect the "true" spectral properties of past changes in temperature and...

Abstract

An ultra-long tree-ring width chronology (9111 years long, 7109 BC to AD 2002) has been established based on the analysis and dating of 1432 subfossil/dry dead wood samples and cores from 335 living trees. The material was collected from treeline or near-treeline sites (c. 2000 to 2400 m a.s.l.)...

Abstract

With sub-fossil remains of trees killed by snow avalanches and found in a peat bog, the so-called Schwarzensteinmoor, we could establish a record of Holocene snow avalanche events. The peat bog is located at 2150 m a.s.l. in the timberline ecotone of the Zillertal Alps in the Central Eastern Alps....

Abstract

Distinct radial growth reductions in Cembran pine (Pinus cembra L.) were studied at the timberline on Mt. Patscherkofel (2246 m a.s.l., Tyrol, Austria), which is situated in the inner-Alpine dry region of the Central Austrian Alps. Six timberline stands with different aspects were sampled and...

Abstract

During recent years a number of fragments of Pinus cembra and Larix decidua wood as well as peat were found in front of the tongue of the Pasterze Glacier in the Eastern Alps. These were washed out by the stream from under the present ice. The wood originates from trees which reached ages of up to...

Abstract

It has been suggested many times that elevated atmospheric CO2 levels should stimulate radial increment of trees. However, interpretation of dendrochronologies with respect to CO2 signal is a difficult task, since a wide range of environmental and tree factors influence the growth of stems. An...

Abstract

In this study dendrochronological methods are used to investigate tree growth of several coniferous species growing on serpentine outcrops in the subalpine region of the Central Alps of the western Tirol, Austria. Although stands are thriving on the same parent material, almost barren sites covered ...
