This project was based on dendrochronology, climate archive data, and stable carbon isotope analysis. However due to COVID-19, the stable carbon isotope analysis was postponed. For the sake of the UROP timeline, the project changed to online. Instead of carbon isotope analysis, dendrochronology measurements and counts were conducted using tracks through high definition images uploaded to Google Earth Pro. This method was recently developed and was able to be tested and compared to Velmex data.
