Tree ring dating database
Year: 2015 » Downloads & Basic Metadata This database contains 32863 tree ring dates from archaeological sites in new Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Utah that Kohler was able to collect.
All date determinations were made by the Laboratory for Tree Ring Research at the University of Arizona.
It’s important to remember that we have limited data, and new discoveries have often overturned previous ‘hard facts’.
Recent research on seasonal effects on tree rings in other trees in the same genus, the plantation pine , has revealed that up to five rings per year can be produced and extra rings are often indistinguishable, even under the microscope, from annual rings.
Most trees growing in temperate climates produce an additional layer of wood every year.
However, when the interpretation of scientific data contradicts the true history of the world as revealed in the Bible, then it’s the interpretation of the data that is at fault.From the beginning of history, we have relied on trees of various types to meet our needs.Much can be learned about a species of tree and its environment by discovering its age, and researchers employ several methods to date trees.This use of tree-ring dating to find the age of a tree is also known as dendrochronology.Researchers can also learn about what a tree endured during a particular year by the condition of the ring they are studying.
