The peer reviewed contributions to the scholarly work 'Tree Rings and Natural Hazards' provide many examples of dendrogeomorphological studies and the use of the various research techniques in demonstrating the application of tree rings to studies of snow avalanches, rockfalls, landslides, floods, earthquakes, wildfires and several other processes. Several of the chapters are "classic studies", others represent recent applications using previously unpublished material. They illustrate the breadth and diverse applications of contemporary dendrogeomorphology and underline the growing potential to expand such studies, possibly leading to the establishment of a range of techniques and approaches that may become standard practice in the analysis of natural hazards in the future. The volume should become a benchmark in these studies.
