Tree Rings' Tale (The): Understanding Our Changing Climate
The Tree Rings’ Tale: Understanding Our Changing Climate
Dendroclimatology, the study of tree rings, was first used to estimate how much water had flowed down the Colorado River each year, thus documenting climate variability. Combining classic climatology with oceanography, meteorology, geology, and archaeology, this resource offers a wide range of activities that complement the tree ring kits and rounds found on this page. The activities in each chapter provide hands-on experience with modern methods used by scientists. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
