Do we need to know about tree rings?

Why would tree rings be on an earthquakes and volcanos test?

Thanks for the advice, EASTstroudsburg13.
No problem.

To show how earthquakes and volcanoes affect tree growth, maybe? It doesn't sound like something you should find on a test.

the only thing i can come up with is if a volcanic eruption would produce greenhouse gases, limiting sunlight from reaching the earth, causing the tree to be depreived of sunlight, and thus growing less or haveing smaller growth rings

That seems like a long time ago, maybe the rules had something about that?

The event Dynamic Planet has a different topic every time it comes back. Past topics that I know of are rivers and lakes, and Oceanography. I'm sure the topic for 2000 could have had tree rings.

I think it's a rotation where the topic stays for 2 years. The rotation goes from Earthquakes+Volcanoes to Rivers and Lakes to Oceanography. It keeps the dynamic planet name for the rivers topic. This is just what I've heard from "elders" on my team.

it also keeps DP for glaciers, which is in between rivers/lakes and oceanography
