About Me

Hartl Mainz Tree ring

I am a dendrochronologist, geographer and ecologist with a strong background in climatology. My research area is generally focused on tree-rings but the spectrum of topics is actually quite broad, as trees with their long lifespan and annual resolution can tell a variety of different stories. I use different tree-ring parameters, such as tree-ring width, stable isotopes and maximum latewood density, for studying various forest ecosystems mostly across Europe. 

 

Examples of my research include studies with… 

 

…ecological background:

  • Vulnerability of mountain forest tree species to climate change with a focus on drought events
  • Determination of the bioclimatological envelope required for insect mass outbreaks in the European Alps
  • Effects of micro-site conditions on boreal forest growth
  • Impact of varying biotic and abiotic factors on Corsican pine tree-ring parameter 
  • Surviving severe drought at the edge of species distribution ranges in recent years

 

…(palaeo)climatological and environmental context: 

  • Comparison of millennium-length tree-ring based temperature reconstructions with climate model simulation across the Northern Hemisphere
  • Determining the effects of large volcanic eruptions on proxy based temperature reconstructions
  • Development of robust millennium length-chronologies and temperature reconstructions
  • Assessing the effects of volcanic degassing on tree rings



…socio-historical and ecological relevance: 

  • Revealing forest damage caused by a quite specific form of pollution, namely smoke screens consisting of chlorosulfonic acid, which was used by the German Kriegsmarine to hide the battleship Tirpitz during the Second World War in a fjord in Northern Norway
