Dendrolab.ch – the Swiss Tree-Ring Lab is one of the major tree-ring labs in Europe and the largest facility worldwide working on the reconstruction of past geomorphic process activity. Dendrolab.ch was founded by Prof. Dr. Markus Stoffel in July 2000. The lab belongs to the Climate Change Impacts and Risks in the Anthropocene (C-CIA) chair and is hosted at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Geneva.
The success story of Dendrolab.ch started with fundamental and applied research on a wide array of geomorphic and geological processes, but now also includes research on paleoclimatology, ecology, glaciology and hydrology. The team is working in most mountain regions of the World incl. the European Alps, Spanish Central System, Carpathians, Mexican Volcanic Belt, Patagonian Andes, Himalayas, Tien Shan, Far East Siberia (Kamchatka Peninsula), Rocky Mountains and the Arctic.
