University of Arizona’s Tree Ring Lab

Note: This post refers to an event that took place on May 5, 2012.

Established in 1937, the UA Laboratory of Tree Ring Research is the world’s premier and largest center devoted to dendrochronology – the study of environments and cultures using tree rings. Beyond the use of dendrochronology in archaeology with which AAHS members are most familiar, the lab pursues multi-disciplinary applications of dendrochronology in climatology, ecology, geology, hydrology, and other fields, which are equally fascinating. Join us on an exploration of this work, including a tour of the sub-stadium warehouses containing material from archaeological digs throughout the southwest. Tour limited to 20. Meet at 9:00 am for a three hour tour. Registrants will be given location and parking directions. Contact Lynn Ratener or (520) 299-3317.
