Andrea Seim

As a dendrochronologist (from Greek dendron = „tree“, khronos = „time“, and -logia = „the study of“) I am studying tree growth and the influencing environmental factors in space and time in order to better understand the history of forest/tree growth, climate and society and their interactions. In addition, the gained knowledge should be used to model future environmental conditions.

Research focus

  • Dendrochronology: development of tree-ring chronologies spanning the Holocene, compilation of local tree-ring chronologies for tree-ring network studies
  • Dendroclimatology: reconstruction of past climate variability, identification of large-scale growth pattern and its underlying driving factors (tree-ring network analyses)
  • Dendroecology: tree growth response to environmental change, forest decline, treeline dynamics
  • Dendroarchaeology: dating of historical and archaeological construction timber, dating of art historical objects such as panel paintings, dendroprovenance
  • Historical climate impact assessment based on proxy-based climate reconstructions and historical sources such as grain pricesResearch location: Eurasia
