Hans Linderholm's research group “Gothenburg University Laboratory for Dendrochronology” (GULD) specializes in tree-ring research, so-called dendrochronology. The focus of the research conducted within GULD is climate variations during the late Holocene, i.e. the ongoing geological period that began about 11,700 years ago. The research group studies, among other things, the impact of climate variations on forest ecosystems and humans.
