Dendrochronologists shed new light on Thera volcanic eruption date   

Date
22 May 2020
Abstract

While shifting disturbance rates and climate change have major implications for the structure of contemporary forests through their effects on adult tree mortality, the responses of regenerating trees to disturbances and environmental variation will ultimately determine the structure and...

Abstract

Humid subtropical China is an "oasis" relative to other dry subtropics of the world due to the prevailing of the East Asian summer monsoon (EASM). Although many long climate sensitive tree-rings have been published to understand the historical climate change over various regions in China, long...

Abstract

Increasing climate warming is inducing drought stress and resulting in forest growth decline in many places around the world. The recent climate of northern China has shown trends of both warming and drying. In this study, we obtained tree ring width chronology of Quercus liaotungensis Koidz. from...

Abstract

A better understanding of growth-climate responses of high-elevation tree species across their distribution range is essential to devise an appropriate forest management and conservation strategies against adverse impacts of climate change. The present study evaluates how radial growth of Himalayan ...

Abstract

Climate changes, their regional patterns, origin, and prediction are currently one of the most important scientific challenges. Tree-rings are among the most widely used proxies for past climate variation. However tree-ring width (TRW) from certain tree species and regions often do not contain...

Abstract

The past geomorphic activity of flash floods in the Eastern Mediterranean has been poorly understood. Despite the general increase in mean annual temperature and decrease in annual precipitation totals, intense rainfall during strong cyclogenesis is still expected under a changing climate. The aim...

Abstract

Wildfires are an important factor in controlling forest ecosystem dynamics across the circumpolar boreal zone. An improved understanding of their direct and indirect, short- to long-term impacts on vegetation cover and permafrost-vegetation coupling is particularly important to predict changes in...

Abstract

Tree-ring growth of forest trees is closely related to climate and environment changes during growth period, thus it is able to provide precise information on climate changes. Therefore, the current study is intended to estimate growth changes and to develop an estimating formula for ring-growth...

Abstract

The Himalayan region has already witnessed profound climate changes detectable in the cryosphere and the hydrological cycle, already resulting in drastic socio-economic impacts. We developed a 619-yea-long tree-ring-width chronology from the central Nepal Himalaya, spanning the period 1399-2017 CE. ...
