Malcolm Hughes

Malcolm K. Hughes studies how and why climate varies on interannual to century time scales. Specific areas of interest include past climate in Europe, Asia, and the Sierra Nevada, as indicated by tree rings; fine detail of wood structure revealed bymicrodensitometry; and the potential of 3,000-year-old and older giant sequoia as proxy climate records. He is also a collaborator in an effort to improve knowledge of the Earth's climate since AD 1000 from tree rings, ice cores, laminated sediments, and historical records.
