|Tree Ring Lab
Tree-Ring Lab (TRL) scientists are dedicated to expanding the use and application of tree-ring research around the world to improve our understanding of past climate and environmental history. Current research concentrates on the use of tree-ring data networks to study regional climate, global climate teleconnections and anthropogenic impacts on forest growth.
A conversation on the importance of sustained engagement on a big challenge, whether intellectual, as in revealing spacetime ripples, or potentially existential, as in pursuing ways to move beyond energy choices that are reshaping Earth for hundreds of generations to come. Cites Lamont's review and research by a group that included Lamont Adjunct Senior Research Scientist Anders Levermann.
