Binz_Meeting Potsdam_122015bWithin the framework of the “Binz-Project” (DACH), all consortium were visiting GFZ and the Telegrafenberg in Potsdam (Dec 1-2, 2015). The main purpose of this second project meeting was to welcome new members and update each other on the various activities in Switzerland (ETH and WSL) as well in Germany (GFZ, Freiburg, Mannheim and Stuttgart). Scientific foci during the first project year were/are clearly centered on the dendrochronological (plus wood anatomical) and radiocarbon (including a newly developed “Speed Dating” technique) assessment of the different late-glacial pine samples from the Zurich area, as well as from diverse sites in Germany and potentially even in northeastern France.
