Abstract:

Future progress in dendrogeomorphology is considered to depend primarily on the extension of the network of millennia-long chronologies, which can be used to date geomorphic and geologic phenomena. The equal temporal accuracy of these dates and dendroclimatic reconstructions permits their combination in detailed, high-resolution descriptions of Holocene environmental changes. The problems related to the combination of dendrogeomorphological information with other geochronological evidence and with other continuous time series are discussed. Dendroglaciology is considered as an important contribution to the study of long-term climatic variations in the last millennium, as exemplified by a discussion of the “Little Ice Age” and the “Medieval Warm Period”. The needs of research in dendrohydrology, dendrovolcanology, dendroseismology, and mass movement studies are also examined. Central Asia, the Altay, Kamchatka, and the Russian plain are suggested as promising areas for further dendrogeomorphic investigations.
