Abstract

Compared to the alpine regions of Austria, the eastern part of the country is overall warmer and drier with some tree species growing at the dry limit within their ecological range. This suggests that tree rings may be a valuable proxy for hydroclimatic variability. In this study, we develop...

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

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

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

The record-breaking heat-wave in summer 2003 was expected to have a strong impact on tree growth, especially where trees occur at their ecological limits. We studied radial growth response of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) and Norway spruce (Picea abies) exposed to dry inner Alpine climate (Tyrol,...

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...

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 ...

Abstract

Describes a study based on 344 increment cores covering 50 years, taken from Norway Spruce, Silver Fir, and Scots Pine in farm forests of S.W. Styria, originally in connexion with an investigation of the effect of stand structure on growth. The material was analysed for effect of mean temperature...

Abstract

Annual-ring diagrams have been prepared for Scots Pine in the Tharandt forest during the 19th century. The fairly constant extreme values show clear correspondences with the variations of precipitation in the area. Ring variations were also studied back to 1690 for Silver Fir and Yew from the...
