Equipment and sample handling

All sampled submitted to the laboratory are registered, followed by preparation of optimal surfaces for analysis across several growth radii of the tree. Subsequently, tree-ring series are measured and registered using specially designed measuring devices (Lintab and Aniol) connected to computers, screens and printers. The soft wares used for data storage, cross-correlation and statistical analyses are CATRAS and ITRDBLIB. Samples subject to wood anatomical determination are analysed with light microscopy and compared against the laboratory’s extensive reference collection of European woody plants
