If you are presently enrolled at the University of Arizona, to the certificate program through the Graduate College.Applications are due not later than April 15, annually.Tree Rings and Natural Hazards provides many illustrations of these themes, demonstrating the application of tree rings to studies of snow avalanches, rockfalls, landslides, floods, earthquakes, wildfires and several other processes. 48 (5), January, 2011) "Tree Rings and Natural Hazards provides a needed and useful survey of a rapidly expanding area of research: using dendrochronology to study geomorphic hazards, including snow avalanches, landslides, rockfall, debris flows, flooding, earthquakes, and volcanic activity. 43 (1), February, 2011)Tree rings and natural hazards : an introduction -- Snow avalanches -- Landslides -- Rockfall -- Debris flows -- Flooding -- Meteorological hazards -- Wildfires -- Earchquakes -- Volcanic activity -- Overall conclusion and outlook: Whither dendrogeomorphology?Several of the chapters are 'classic studies', others represent recent applications using previously unpublished material. / Markus Stoffel [and others]."The initial employment of tree rings in natural hazard studies was simply as a dating tool and rarely exploited other environmental information and records of damage contained within the tree.

It publishes high-quality original research dealing with growth rings of woody plants and the application of tree-ring studies to problems in a wide variety of fields including, but not limited to, archaeology, botany, climatology, ecology, forestry, geology and hydrology.This was done by using the root axis as the relative position of the former soil layer and then relating this measure to the age of the root in order to quantify the amount of soil erosion over time.
