Tree-Ring Bulletin, Vol. 32 (1972)
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Tree-Ring Research is the peer-reviewed journal of the Tree-Ring Society. The journal was first published in 1934 under the title Tree-Ring Bulletin. In 2001, the title changed to Tree-Ring Research.
The Tree-Ring Society and the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research at the University of Arizona partnered with the University Libraries to digitize back issues for improved searching capabilities and long-term preservation. New issues are added on an annual basis, with a rolling wall of five years.

Tree-Rings and Sunspot NumbersTree-ring series that record climatic variation have long been of interest for study of possible effects of solar variability on terrestrial phenomena. Spectral analysis, harmonic dial analysis, digital filtering, cross-correlation and principal component analysis were used separately and in combination in an attempt to detect relationships between the annual Wolf sunspot numbers and ring-width indices, primarily from western North America. The results show no evidence of significant, consistent relationships between tree-ring data and sunspot numbers.
Tree-Ring Research in EuropeIn the last ten years tree-ring analysis in Europe and its application has been extended considerably. By varied methods, a number of chronologies have been established for conifers and deciduous trees from different climatic regions that partly reach back to periods before the birth of Christ. The focus of dendrochronological research is usually dating and climatological studies are carried on only sporadically.
