Griffin Lab

Dendrochronology | Climate Variability & Change | Environmental Dynamics

Scientists in our group research climate, trees, water resources, and environmental dynamics. We identify and map old-growth forests for management, conservation, and science. Fieldwork, development of high-quality datasets, and hypothesis-driven research on timely, socially-relevant issues are central to our efforts, which rely on tools analytical tools that dendrochronology, spatiotemporal numerical analyses and statistics, advanced geospatial technologies, and high-resolution image analysis. We are one of several groups affiliated with the MN Dendro Collective.
