Along with directly measured climate data from the present and recent past, it is important to obtain estimates of long past climate variations spanning multiple centuries and millennia.Dendroclimatic Studies at the North American Tree Line presents an overview of the current state of dendroclimatology, its contributions over the past few decades, and its future potential. The material included is not useful not only to those who generate tree-ring records of past climate-dendroclimatologists, but also to users of their results-climatologists, hydrologists, ecologists and archeologists.In summary, this book: Sheds light on recent and future climate trends by assessing long term past climatic variations from tree ringsIs a timely coverage of a crucial topic in climate science portraying recent warming trends which are of serious concern todayFeatures well-reputed scientists highlighting new advanced methodologies to reconstruct past climate changeModels the tree growth environmental response
