Tree rings

In its yearly call for infrastructure projects, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (an independent foundation for the advancement of the humanities and social sciences) has awarded 7.7 MSEK to the National Swedish Laboratory for Wood Anatomy and Dendrochronology at the Department of Geology. The project, which is based on collaboration with Humlab in Umeå and dendrochronology laboratories at three other Swedish universities, will be led by Dan Hammarlund and last for four years. The purpose is to digitise and make publically available data from more than 40,000 analysed and age determined wood samples and their associated information on cultural history, climate and environment over thousands of years. The infrastructure SEAD (Strategic Environmental Archaeology Database) will be applied and prepared for data from new approaches, among others as performed at the research infrastructure MAX IV, and later also ESS.
