Name of course leader / leaders:

dr Ryszard J. Kaczka



Prerequisites:

Climatology, physical geography, geology, geomorphology,



Assumptions and objectives of the course:

Tree-rings potential as proxies for climate reconstructions. Developing skills of using different proxies for analyzing the paleoclimate and recent climate change.



The form and terms of assessment of the course:

final test



Registration for the course / additional notes:

Introduction to basic dendrochronological methods of climate reconstruction using tree-ring analyses. Examples of employing tree-ring width, maximum wood density, stable izotopes for paleogeografical and paleoeclological studies. Comparasion of varies climatic (ice cores, corals, stable izotopes, sediments) with dendrochronological proxies.
