Fieldwork at high elevations

We conducted two international field campaigns in May and June to sample high-elevation pines in the Pyrenees (Pinus uncinata) and South Norway (Pinus sylvestris). In addition to dendrochronological sampling, we installed dendrometers and microclimate loggers (soil and air temperature and moisture/humidity) to better understand climate-growth responses at high temporal resolution – our sensors record data at 30-minute intervals! The research is related to our GAUK and GACR treeline projects, and additional funding was provided by the INTERACT international network.
