Updating Tree-Ring Chronologies

Updating tree-ring chronologies

Students in the TREES Lab have developed tree-ring collections at multiple sites in Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Maine to update existing chronologies developed at these sites in the 1970s and 1980s. The updated chronologies are being used to develop more robust climate reconstructions.
