Results of fieldwork in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve by collaborators from Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and University of Alaska – Fairbanks are described here in this excellent blog. This narrative is written by scientist, author and collaborator on the project Lauren Oakes. Lauren is also author of a forthcoming book on Alaska Cedar Decline and Climate.
Community Forestry group and Tree Corps – a new program run out of the Holden Arboretum visited the Tree Ring Lab to learn a bit about tree-sampling and the information contained in the tree records.
Coring a white oak that is slated for removal – we learned a lot from the group. For example, Volcano munching was a topic of conversation a concept we which were not aware.
More coring – Nick then took the group to the wood shop and lab.
Mounting the cores – we look forward to working with the group next year. The Tree Corp Program in its inaugural year seemed a major success – congratulations.
