Abstract

This paper presents a review of recent advances and applications in the field of dendrogeomorphology over the last decades. Emphasis here is placed on those applications that utilize tree-ring chronologies to extract information on the timing and extent of past geomorphic changes. Examples are presented to illustrate how trees record Quaternary events, to emphasize the importance of tree-ring crossdating in the determination of precise calendar dates of events and, to show the utility of tree-rings as a correlation tool
