Results of our studies of gas content in rings of tree discs have shown that a significant part of the CO2 generated by cell respiration remains in tree stems. The content of this CO2 exceeds the atmospheric CO2 in most cases and forms the distribution over tree rings. In our investigations, we first used photoacoustic gas analysis. In this work, we discuss certain features of the chronologies (year-to-year distribution) of gas samples.
