Dendrochronology is a method that deals with dating old wood. This is performed by measuring the tree-rings. These vary year by year depending on the conditions changes year by year. The main common factor is the climate variation. By measuring the tree-rings from many old trees of same species and within a limited area one can create a standard of the tree-ring variation through the years, a master-chronology. Measured sample from trees, which have been cut down hundreds of years ago can be adjusted to this master-chronology and in that way prolong the master-chronology back in time.

The dendrochronological science applications I do is following:

  • Dendrochronological dating, buildings, items etc.
  • Dendroclimatology, meteorological parameters which affect the growth.
  • Wood anatomy analyses
