Griffin Lab

Dendrochronology | Climate Variability & Change | Environmental Dynamics

We research trees, rings, climate, water resources, and environmental dynamics. We work in old-growth forests on issues related to science, conservation, and management. Fieldwork, data development, and hypothesis-driven research on socially-relevant issues are central to our efforts. We deploy various analytical tools including dendrochronology, spatiotemporal numerical analyses and statistics, advanced geospatial technologies, and high-resolution imaging. We are one of several groups affiliated with the MN Dendro Collective.
