The breadth of geographic conditions, climatic variations, and dynamics of the landscape of Chile makes Chile a natural laboratory for the use of dendrochronology in several of its applications. In this talk, we will share some of the experiences that are taking place in the Laboratory of Dendrochronology and Environmental Studies in the city of Valparaíso to study the dynamics of the environment in Chile.
