1 Dendroclimatic study in Nepal Himalaya: an update 1 PAGES 4 th Asia 2k Workshop, RIHN, Kyoto, Japan March 2015

2 Narayan Prasad Gaire Sanjaya Bhandari Uday Kuwar Thapa Dinesh Raj Bhuju Madan Koirala Santosh Kumar Shah Rupraj Timilsena Bimal Sharma 2 Research Team

3 Dendrochronological sampling sites 3 Studies in progress

4 Dendrochronological sampling sites 4

5 Tsuga dumosa RW chronology from Apinampa CA Bhandari et al (in preparation) 5

6 Ring growth response with climate Fig: Correlation coefficient analysis of the ring width growth of Tsuga dumosa and the average annual temperature and precipitation. * * * Significant & Positive 6

7 Spring temperature in ANCA region. Fig: Reconstructed mean temperature of pre monsoon months –

8 Spatial coverage Fig: Correlation between CRU and Reconstructed average Temp of March-May 8

9 Premonsoon precipitation 9 Fig: Reconstructed mean precipitation of pre monsoon months

10 Abies pindrow RW chronology= Khaptad NP (Thapa et al 2013, Banko Jankari) 10

11 Growth-climate Relationship 11

12 Studies in progess 12

13 Betula utilis –Apinampa CA 13

14 Betula utilis= Rara NP 14

15 Cedrus deodara Rara NP 15

16 Larix grifithiana = Kanchanjungha CA 16

17 Juniperus recurva = Kanchanjungha CA 17

18 Conclusions  Few new chronologies having dendro climatic potential developed  Temperature reconstruction showed several cooling and warming trends  Analysis of many chronology is in progress What Next  River basin wise (Watershed based) hydro climate reconstruction using multiproxy data of multiples species 18
