Join us in the newly established Tree-Ring Unit (TRU) at the
Department of Geography to gain first insights into the various aspects
of modern tree-ring research, including wood anatomy. Guided by Alma
Piermattei, Paul J. Krusic and Ulf Büntgen (as well as Alex Kirdyanov
and Alan Crivellaro), you will see how different tree-ring parameters
are developed to facilitate a deeper understanding of past and ongoing
interactions between the environment and plant growth. During this lab
visit, two foci will illuminate the development of annually resolved and
absolutely dated climate reconstructions for the Common Era, as well as
the additional, intra-annual information obtained from state-of-the-art
wood anatomical studies. Considering Cambridge’s TRU as an
interdisciplinary hub, we look forward to welcoming colleagues from many
disciplines, such as earth sciences, plant sciences, archaeology and

Link for sign up:

Snacks will be provided, and tours may be followed by a trip to the pub
and more time for socializing afterwards.
