NF Siberian Climate
Contact: Matthias Saurer,
The project will be carried out in close cooperation with the V.N.Sukachev Institute of Forest, Krasnoyarsk (Russia), which provides a unique opportunity to access valuable samples from an area difficult to reach. With the new methodology we will retrieve the full information contained in these samples. The results will be compared to studies conducted in the Alpine region in the Lötschental, where tree growth is also temperature-limited, but where the soil conditions (without permafrost) are very different.
