International Summer School 2012 “Tree Rings, Climate, Natural Resources, and Human Interaction”, Valsaín, Spain. ("DendroSpain 2012")

Presented by Dr. Juan Antonio BALLESTEROS CANOVAS, Prof. Ramzi TOUCHAN, Mr. Dave MEKO on 15 May 2013 from 18:00 to 21:00
Type: Poster Presentation
Board #: 23


The summer school objectives were to sharpen and broaden the dendrochronology skills of the participants, stimulate ideas for future dendrochronological research, and foster collaboration of tree-ring researchers around the world. The course was hosted by the National Center for Environmental Education at the Valsaín Forest (Spain). The course had 14 participants from three countries (Spain, Algeria, and Russia). Activities included basic training in dendrochronology skills as well as application to projects in dendroclimatology, dendroecology and dendrogeomorphology. Group projects focused on P. sylvestris stands at three locations: a high-elevation (1864 m a.s.l.) site, a lower-elevation (1534 m a.s.l) site, and upper and lower reaches of the flood-influence area of a tributary of the Eresma River. The course demonstrates the potential of tree-ring data for studying various aspects of the climate, ecology, and geomorphology of the Valsaín Forest.
