Brief Description

We research climate change in the context of developing long tree-ring records. Analyses of these records can be used to explore changes in climate over shorter to long-term timescales.

We mainly work in the Mediterranean, Near Eastern and southern European region, but also research in northeast North America. Our total time horizon is the last 15,000 years, with a concentration on the last several millennia.

A dendrochronology course is taught each year, open to undergraduate or graduate students.
