Fieldwork
2014 09 01-05 Fieldwork was carried out in Čepkeliai and Rėkyva peatlands. During fieldwork pine trees growing at Čepkeliai peatland and growing adjacent to the bog were sampled. The data of dendrochronological analyze of these samples will be used for hydrological and climatological comparisons. Pine seedlings at Rėkyva peatland were sampled. Analyze of these trees will give an age to recent tree establishment at the bog and enable comparsions between tree establishment, tree growth, bog hydrology and meteorological data.
