Une évolution singulière, de la terre vers l’eau : la dendrochronologie

Abstract : Dendrochronology was born out of the work of an astronomer, A.E. Douglass, in the semi-arid regions of the south-east of the United States as he searched for a connection between solar cycles and the Earth’s climate. It has swiftly become a reliable method for dating wood. After shifting its application from semi-arid to temperate zones, dendrochronology has opened up to an immense field of applications ranging from the study of dry and carbonised wood of terrestrial environments to waterlogged wood of wet zones and underwater environments.
