Historically, the growth of forests at the far northern latitudinal treeline of North America and Eurasia, as well as those at elevational treeline, has been limited largely by cold temperatures. In recent decades, with northern amplification of temperatures, largely due to anthropogenic warming, some of these forests have responded as expected with increased growth, while others have responded negatively due to drought stress.

This volume describes four decades of research by a group of scientists in the field of dendrochronology, or tree-ring analysis, of northern forests and their use in large-scale reconstructions of temperature and
indices of atmosphere-ocean circulation. This book takes into account the forests’ cooling response to volcanism and other climatic forcings. These records provide a long-term context for the limited instrumental record of recent decades, and a means for comparison with climate and forest growth modeling that strive to understand the causes and patterns of climatic and environmental change over the past millennium.

Volume highlights include:

• Long-term analysis of climatic reconstructions from tree rings.


• New advanced methodologies on reconstructing past climate

• State-of-the-art review of the present state of dendroclimatology and it’s future potential

• Modeling tree growth environmental response

• Recent warming trends which are of serious concern today

• Future forecasts on global climate change

Dendroclimatic Studies is a valuable contribution in Earth’s climate change studies, shedding light on recent and future climate trends by assessing long-term past climatic variations from tree-rings. Aside from geoscientists, meteorologists and paleoclimatologists, climate modelers, environmental hydrogeologists, public policy makers, and global insurance industry specialists could greatly benefit from the content of this book.
