    • Dendroclimatic reconstruction of late Holocene summer temperatures in the Scottish Highlands 

      Rydval, Miloš (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-22) - Thesis
      This thesis focuses on reconstructing past temperatures using Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) tree-ring chronologies developed from Scotland. The research aims to fill a spatial and temporal gap in understanding northwest ...
    • Detection and removal of disturbance trends in tree-ring series for dendroclimatology 

      Rydval, Miloš; Druckenbrod, Daniel; Anchukaitis, Kevin J.; Wilson, Rob (2016-03) - Journal article
      Nonclimatic disturbance events are an integral element in the history of forests. Although the identification of the occurrence and duration of such events may help to understand environmental history and landscape change, ...
    • Facilitating tree-ring dating of historic conifer timbers using Blue Intensity 

      Wilson, Rob; Wilson, David; Rydval, Miloš; Crone, Anne; Büntgen, Ulf; Clark, Sylvie; Ehmer, Janet; Forbes, Emma; Fuentes, Mauricio; Gunnarson, Björn E.; Linderholm, Hans W.; Nicolussi, Kurt; Wood, Cheryl Victoria; Mills, Coralie (2017-02) - Journal article
      Dendroarchaeology almost exclusively uses ring-width (RW) data for dating historical structures and artefacts. Such data can be used to date tree-ring sequences when regional climate dominates RW variability. However, the ...
    • Influence of sampling and disturbance history on climatic sensitivity of temperature-limited conifers 

      Rydval, Miloš; Druckenbrod, Daniel L; Svoboda, Miroslav; Trotsiuk, Volodymyr; Janda, Pavel; Mikoláš, Martin; Čada, Vojtěch; Bače, Radek; Teodosiu, Marius; Wilson, Rob (2018-07-26) - Journal article
      Accurately capturing medium- to low-frequency trends in tree-ring data is vital to assessing climatic response and developing robust reconstructions of past climate. Non-climatic disturbance can affect growth trends in ...
    • Last millennium northern hemisphere summer temperatures from tree rings : Part I: The long term context 

      Wilson, Rob; Anchukaitis, Kevin; Briffa, Keith R.; Büntgen, Ulf; Cook, Edward; D'Arrigo, Rosanne; Davi, Nicole; Esper, Jan; Frank, Dave; Gunnarson, Björn; Hegerl, Gabi; Helama, Samuli; Klesse, Stefan; Krusic, Paul J.; Linderholm, Hans W.; Myglan, Vladimir; Osborn, Timothy J.; Rydval, Miloš; Schneider, Lea; Schurer, Andrew; Wiles, Greg; Zhang, Peng; Zorita, Eduardo (2016-02-15) - Journal item
      Large-scale millennial length Northern Hemisphere (NH) temperature reconstructions have been progressively improved over the last 20 years as new datasets have been developed. This paper, and its companion (Part II, ...
    • Last millennium Northern Hemisphere summer temperatures from tree rings : part II, spatially resolved reconstructions 

      Anchukaitis, Kevin J.; Wilson, Rob; Briffa, Keith R.; Büntgen, Ulf; Cook, Edward R.; D'Arrigo, Rosanne; Davi, Nicole; Esper, Jan; Frank, David; Gunnarson, Björn E.; Hegerl, Gabi; Helama, Samuli; Klesse, Stefan; Krusic, Paul J.; Linderholm, Hans W.; Myglan, Vladimir; Osborn, Timothy J.; Zhang, Peng; Rydval, Miloš; Schneider, Lea; Schurer, Andrew; Wiles, Greg; Zorita, Eduardo (2017-05-01) - Journal article
      Climate field reconstructions from networks of tree-ring proxy data can be used to characterize regional-scale climate changes, reveal spatial anomaly patterns associated with atmospheric circulation changes, radiative ...
    • Reconstructing 800 years of summer temperatures in Scotland from tree rings 

      Rydval, Miloš; Loader, Neil J.; Gunnarson, Björn E.; Druckenbrod, Daniel L.; Linderholm, Hans W.; Moreton, Steven G.; Wood, Cheryl Victoria; Wilson, Rob (2017-11) - Journal article
      This study presents a summer temperature reconstruction using Scots pine tree-ring chronologies for Scotland allowing the placement of current regional temperature changes in a longer-term context. ‘Living-tree’ chronologies ...
    • Spatial reconstruction of Scottish summer temperatures from tree rings 

      Rydval, Miloš; Gunnarson, Björn E.; Loader, Neil J.; Cook, Edward R.; Druckenbrod, Daniel L.; Wilson, Rob (2017-03-15) - Journal article
      A detailed understanding of past temporal patterns and spatial expression of temperature variations is important to place recent anthropogenic climate change into a longer term context. In order to fill the current gap in ...
