Quick Reference

Branch of dendrochronology dealing with the relationships between the annual growth increment in tree trunks and climate, and especially with the reconstruction of past climates from dated tree-ring series. It is assumed that by studying present tree-ring patterns in relation to climate, older tree-ring chronologies may be used to indicate the climatic conditions experienced before detailed climate and weather records were kept.
