An introduction to tree ring dating

Authors Stokes and Smiley first explain the basic principles of tree-ring dating, then describe details of the process, step by step, from the time a sample is collected until it is incorporated into a master chronology.The book focuses on coniferous evergreens of the Southwest, particularly piñons, because they have wide geographic distribution, constitute a large population, and show excellent growth response to certain controlling factors.The book is specifically concerned with the task of establishing a calendar date for a wood or charcoal specimen.

The book is specifically concerned with the task of establishing a calendar date for a wood or charcoal specimen. This book--a seminal study in its field--provides a simple yet eloquent introduction to the discipline, explaining what a dendrochronologist does both in the field and in the laboratory. The book focuses on coniferous evergreens of the Southwest, particularly pions, because they have wide geographic distribution, constitute a large population, and show excellent growth response to certain controlling factors.This concise but thorough explication of an important discipline will make dendrochonology more meaningful to students and professionals in archaeology, forestry, hydrology, and global change.

A harsh winter or dry/hot summer generally has a negative effect on a tree's growth causing a narrow tree-ring in that year.Turabian (6th ed.)

S., Alexander Catlin Twining (1801–1884) suggested in 1833 that patterns among tree rings could be used to synchronize the dendrochronologies of various trees and thereby to reconstruct past climates across entire regions.During the latter half of the nineteenth century, the scientific study of tree rings and the application of dendrochronology began.A tree's growth rate changes in a predictable pattern throughout the year in response to seasonal climate changes, resulting in visible growth rings.Each ring marks a complete cycle of seasons, or one year, in the tree's life.Authors Stokes and Smiley first explain the basic principles of tree-ring dating, then describe details of the process, step by step, from the time a sample is collected until it is incorporated into a master chronology.

BRAND NEW, An Introduction to Tree-Ring Dating, Marvin A. Smiley, Tree-ring dating, or dendrochronology, is the study of the chronological sequence of annual growth rings in trees. Authors Stokes and Smiley first explain the basic principles of tree-ring dating, then describe details of the process, step by step, from the time a sample is collected until it is incorporated into a master chronology.
