This plan combines state-of-the-art expertise within the Finnish research environment to promote understanding of climate variability and change. The plan proceeds with an integration of Finnish dendroclimatic research teams and their laboratories and gathers up uniquely qualified consortium of palaeoclimate excellence. Compound data analyses will take advantage of sources of high-resolution climatic information from the high-latitude areas of continental Europe in Lapland: dendroclimatic carbon isotopes (δ13C) and tree-ring growth rates of the material reaching from 5634 BC to the present day, information of dendrochronologically dated ecotone records of plant occurrence/distribution, instrumental weather observations and archaeological records. The proposed project ties in the resources of the Finnish Museum of Natural History and the Finnish Forest Research Institute to extend the dendrochronology-based climate reconstructions to cover large part of the present interglacial era.
