Learning from Trees
Climate variability data found in tree rings
By Marie Zhuikov
New technologies provide inspiration for some research projects, and some are a result of studies. For Evan Larson, assistant professor of geography at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, inspiration came in the form of a bike ride.
“I was riding through the Platteville countryside, and I saw all these beautiful old oak trees,” said Larson, who also co-directs UW-Platteville’s Tree-Ring, Earth and Environmental Sciences (TREES) Laboratory (www3.uwplatt.edu/trees). “I realized the area had a lot of trees that have lingered on the landscape since before European settlement, and that those trees could tell us the history of the climate in this region.”
