Seeing the river through the trees : using cottonwood dendrochronology to reconstruct river dynamics in the Upper Missouri River Basin
MetadataShow full item record
Understanding the past is critical to preparing for the future, especially regarding rivers where extreme events and gradual changes underlie modern forms and processes. Both biological and human communities rely on the abundant resources provided by rivers and floodplains, particularly in dry regions of the western U.S. where water limits growth. To expand temporal perspectives on river processes, I reconstructed flow, channel migration, and riparian forest growth patterns in the Upper Missouri River Basin. Flow reconstructions typically use tree rings from montane conifers. However, I used ...
