Scientific and Research Activities
  • Main research questions: What are the causes and consequences of past and ongoing changes in diverse, though often intertwined environmental systems, including timely aspects of wildlife biology, forest- and myco-ecology, (paleo)climatology and human history, across a wide range of spatial and temporal scales; and how can different tree-ring archives, parameters and techniques be optimised to provide scientific answers to such and related inter- and cross-disciplinary research questions of societal relevance?
  • Research foci: Arctic driftwood: Wood anatomy, Ocean Circulation Patterns, Provenancing, aDNA sequencing Climate variability: MWP, LIA, Recent Warming, Color-preservation, Forcing agents Dendrochronology: De-trending, Composite chronologies, Maximum Latewood Density Early instrumental measurements: Homogenization, Urban-Heat-Island, High-elevation observations Mountain systems: European Alps, Carpathian arc, Pyrenees, Caucasus, Scandinavia and Tien Shan Landscape dynamics: Change and persistence in Alpine environment, settlement and building history Palaeoclimatology: Long-term reconstructions, regional- to large-scale networks, frequency domains Settlement activity: Construction timber, felling dates, dendroarchaeology, human history, population migration Vegetation dynamics: Intra-/interannual growth responses, treeline and ecotone dynamics, shrubs and herbs
