Dendrogeomorphology Beginnings and Futures: a private memory My early forays into dendrogeomorphology happened lengthy prior to I even knew what that notice intended. i used to be operating as a tender geoscientist within the Sixties and early Nineteen Seventies on an issue with slope pursuits and deformed crops. whilst, unknown to me, Jouko Alestalo in Finland was once doing whatever related. either one of us had visible that bushes which produced annual development jewelry have been reacting to g- morphic approaches leading to alterations of their inner and exterior progress p- terns. Dendroclimatology used to be an already good tested box, however the reactions of timber to different environmental strategies have been some distance much less good understood within the Nineteen Sixties. It used to be Alestalo (1971) who first used the time period, dendrogeomorphology. within the early Nineteen Seventies, i'll see that energetic slope-movement procedures have been affecting the expansion of bushes in varied methods at sure localities. i needed to benefit extra approximately these methods and check out to extract a long term chronology of circulation from the hugely various ring patterns.
