Mål

The project studies boreal forests that are particularly sensitive and vulnerable to climate change. The goal is to better understand and to predict how the changing growth conditions have affected and will affect forest growth in the future. This is achieved by applying novel analytical methods, which will improve the interpretation of climate signal in stable carbon (δ13C) and oxygen (δ18O) isotope composition of tree rings.
