In Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
from Sunday 23-rd Saturday 30-th July 2000
The fieldweek is a work week in applied tree-ring research. It is designed to give the beginners in the discipline an introduction to basic principles and methodology, to train in dendrochronological techniques, including field sampling, processing, data analysis, climatic reconstructions and more ecological questions.
The overall format for the fieldweek will be to split up into 2 groups that investigate different climatological and
ecological questions using tree-ring data as a starting point. After introduction, each group will spend 2-3 days in the
field gathering samples and data to answer specific questions. The rest of the time will be spent by analysing the data
and preparing the presentation of the results. At the end of the week we will have an informal poster presentation where
each group will present the results of the work to other fieldweek participants and guests. The organisers will also make presentation and lecture during evening meetings.
Students from National University of Mongolia, Mongolian Technical University and other participants from Institute of Botany, Institute of GeoEcology.
Dendrochronology, Dendroclimatology, Dendroecology
