    About this book. This work is presented in three parts. Part 1 provides the basis of dendrochronology as a science, introducing the reader to the details of tree and wood anatomy, followed by a brief history of the discipline, emphasising the importance of cross-dating for the development of tree-ring chronologies.   3.

    Well-defined annual-growth rings can be observed in the wood (xylem) from many species of temperate forest trees throughout the world. The rings are formed by cell division of the cambium, which lies along the inner portion of the surrounding bark (Figure T25).In certain circumstances these growth rings contain useful information about varying environmental conditions affecting . After the wood has been studied, we then look to other information about the site, social status of trees (competition for sun, water, and other nutrients), the forest ecology of that region, etc., to aid in the data set analysis, and context of historical samples to .

    The book also contains additional chapters on other topics related to assessment of the world’s water resources, hydrometric network appraisal, long river flow records, weather radar, remote sensing, ground-water, and tree ring analysis. I found the articles on tree ring analysis, long records of stream discharge, estimation of precipitation. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.
