Nicholas Kessler – “Tree-Ring Dating Techniques for the Desert Basin of Southern and Central Arizona”

University of Arizona ENR2 Room 107, 1064 E Lowell St, Tucson 1064 E Lowell St., Tucson, AZ, United States

Cultural chronologies in the desert basins of the Southwestern U.S. rely on radiocarbon dates and ceramic sequences that are limited in terms of resolution. More precise dating methods, such as dendrochronology, have not been traditionally applied here due to the limited number of datable trees in arid locales.
