The environmental geography lab at Concord UniversityFaculty and student research in the Environmental Geography Lab (EGL) primarily utilizes dendrochronology (tree-ring science) to examine trends in forest ecosystem dynamics, climate variability, and land use, while giving particular attention to forest management and conservation applications. The lab also provides undergraduate learning and research opportunities in the general fields of biogeography, climatology, soils, and Geospatial Information Science (GIScience). These fields of study encourage students to not only explore and analyze the dynamic nature of Earth’s physical and biological systems, but also the reciprocal relationships between humans and these systems – this is “environmental geography.” Additional information can be found at
