dendroclimatology

dendroclimatology The branch of dendrochronology that deals with the relationships between the annual growth increment in tree trunks and climate, and especially with the reconstruction of past climates from dated tree-ring series. It is assumed that by studying present tree-ring patterns in relation to climate, older tree-ring chronologies may be used to indicate the climatic conditions experienced before detailed climate and weather records were kept. The value of such studies may be limited because of environmental influences (see dendroecology).
