What is I-BIND?
I-BIND is an international consortium of tree-ring scientists who focus on the application and improvement of the BI (Blue Intensity) method for dendrochronology.
- To promote the methods of BI generation of Tree-Ring Laboratories around the globe and encourage standard protocols and best practice
- To encourage the further development of the BI methodology through workshops and collaboration
- To encourage collaboration for the creation of regional networks of BI chronologies – not just from temperature limited woodland locations, but also from more moisture stressed limited sites at low elevations/latitudes.
- To explore the utilisation of BI for historical dating and dendro-provenancing
