The European Dendroecological Fieldweek covers the full spectrum of dendrochronological issues, including dendroclimatology, dendroecology, dendrogeomorphology, dendroarcheology and wood anatomy, and fosters cross-disciplinary links. Each topic includes keynote lectures, fieldwork and data production/analysis in small groups, supervised by an advanced scientist. Participants will learn methods of field sampling, sample preparation, visual and statistical cross-dating, data production of tree-ring widths, blue reflectance, stable isotopes, cell size parameters, image analysis, statistical data analysis, and presentation of results. Participants and advanced scientists will spend the whole week together, and there will be ample opportunity to learn, discuss and make new friends from all around the world.
