Exercise 1: Tree-ring anatomy

| No Comments

Later today (Tuesday), we'll begin our first in-lab exercise in dendrochronology. The objective of this first exercise is to (1) introduce you to basic wood anatomy and (2) help you understand how these features combine to create annual growth rings.

I've allotted two class sessions (Tuesday and Thursday) for this work. If you finish early, I'll help you get started on the next exercise with a sneak peak into the basics of tree-ring dating.

I've uploaded a PDF copy of the first assignment here.
