Tree Ring Dendrochronology Lab



Friday, February 17. This is a one-and-a-hal-hour tour with a seasoned docent. We will be walking through the lab visiting areas of research such as dendroclimatology, geomorphology, hydrology, isotope chemistry and other environmental concerns. Research going on there now has Russians working on reconstructing the drought in Siberia. The Lab itself was established in 1973 by a UA astronomer who is considered the founder of the Modern Science of Dendrochronology. We will carpool at the Views lot at 8:45 for the 10:00 AM tour. It would be helpful to let the leader know if you are willing to drive. Lunch will be at Gentle Ben’s, one of the UA campus’ favorite spots. If necessary we can have one car returning right after the tour. Group Size is limited to 22. Cost is $15/pp. Tour closed.
