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

Although growth limitation of trees at Alpine and high-latitude timberlines by prevailing summer temperature is well established, the loss of thermal response of radial tree growth during last decades has repeatedly been addressed. We examined long-term variability of climate-growth relationships...

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

A total number of 177 dendrochronologically dated samples from subfossil logs found in the Schwarzensteinmoor, Zillertal Alps, were investigated for indicators of past snow avalanche events. The samples (species: Pinus cembra L.) are up to approx. 9000 years old. Different indicators for...

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

Details are given of dendrochronological studies on living, dead standing and fallen trees of Pinus cembra at the forest limit (2200 - 2300 m alt.) in Austria. Many of them had died in the period 1820-1850; i.e. the last great advance of the glaciers in Austria. A mean ring-width curve was...

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

The rust Chrysomyxa rhododendri is a fungal pathogen which causes substantial needle loss in Norway spruce (Picea abies) at the timberline in the Alps, where the main host (Rhododendron sp.) is widespread. Dendrochronological techniques were used in this study to detect the impact on radial tree...
