Each topic includes keynote lectures, fieldwork and data production/analysis in small groups, supervised by an advanced scientist.Participants will learn methods of field sampling, sample preparation, visual and statistical cross-dating, data production of tree-ring widths, blue reflectance, stable isotopes, cell size parameters, image analysis, statistical data analysis, and presentation of results.
Participants require a basic knowledge in statistics, however no previous programming knowledge is required as the course begins with an introduction.
Participants will learn how to use R as a powerful tool for the management and visualisation of large data sets, and be given an introduction into R modelling.
Participants should be willing to work in the field, the lab and at the computer.
