A 200-year tree-ring chronology of pine from a raised bog in Sweden : implication for climate change ?
A dendrochronological study was made on fossil tree trunk of Scots pine, Pinus sylvestris, preserved in a peat bog at Hanvedsmossen, 50 km SW of Stockholm. Of 56 sampled pines, 48 were assembled in a 204-year long floating chronology (1686-1483 BC). The pine growth steadily decreased during the last 30 years of the chronology and most trees died during the same period. The climate shift resulted in higher amounts of precipitation or lower temperature, which in turn resulted in lower evaporation, raised the water table, and caused the death and preservation of the trees. It is proposed that the climate shift was a transitional stage
