Researchers study Alaska forest fires over past 450 years

In a recent study, University of Montana researchers explored the ways forest succession and climate variability interacted and influenced fires in Alaska's boreal forests over the past four centuries—from 1550 to 2015.

A clearer view of past climate from tree rings

To see where the Earth's climate is headed, we have to see where it's been—and a new San Francisco State University study could offer a clearer picture. The study outlines a way to use a basic law of plant growth to improve ...

New tree ring analysis method may open insights to past climate

Satellite imagery of earth's vegetation, measurements of carbon dioxide in the air and computer models all help scientists understand how climate is affecting carbon dynamics and the world's forests. But these technologies ...
