Abstract Many years of low growth identified in a western USA regional chronology of upper forest border bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva and Pinus aristata) over the last 5000 yr coincide with known large explosive volcanic eruptions and/or ice core signals of past eruptions. Over the last millennium the agreement between the tree-ring data and volcano/ice-core data is high: years of ring-width minima can be matched with known volcanic eruptions or ice-core volcanic signals in 86% of cases.

Temporal stability in bristlecone pine tree-ring stable oxygen isotope chronologies over the last two centuries
The absolutely dated bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva) tree-ring chronology spans almost 9000 years, offering great potential for inferring past environmental change. Existing ring width chronologiesExpand
Tree ring effects and ice core acidities clarify the volcanic record of the first millennium
Abstract. In 2012 Plummer et al., in presenting the volcanic chronology of the Antarctic Law Dome ice core, chose to list connections to acid layers in other ice cores and also possible chronologicalExpand

The influence of volcanic eruptions on growth of central European lowland trees in NE-Germany during the last millennium
Abstract Palaeoclimate proxies have shown links between climate changes and volcanic activity. However, not much is known about the impact of volcanic outbursts on growth of lowland trees. WeExpand
An annually resolved bristlecone pine carbon isotope chronology for the last millennium
Abstract We present the first near millennium-length, annually resolved stable isotope record from bristlecone pines (Pinus longaeva, D.K Bailey). The carbon isotope ratios from the cellulose ofExpand
Palaeovolcanos, Solar activity and pine tree-rings from the Kola Peninsula (northwestern Russia) over the last 560 years

Volcanic Eruptions over the Last 5,000 Years from High Elevation Tree-Ring Widths and Frost Rings
Some tree-ring records, due to their great age, the annual resolution of their dates, and their sensitivity to the climatic effects of large volcanic eruptions, are useful in understanding theExpand
esting the hypothesis of post-volcanic missing rings in temperature sensitive endrochronological data
The precise, annual dating control, inherent to dendrochronology, has recently been questioned through a combined analysis of tree-growth and coupled climate models (Mann et al. (2012; hereafterExpand
