Handling Zero rings in CooRecorder and CDendro 

because ring widths are too thin to be measured or there are obviously an unknown number of missing rings within that section. There are also times when you know from crossdating that there is a single ring missing somewhere inside a segment of some 10 normal rings. In such a cases you want to insert one or several "zero rings" in your measurement to make segments on each side of the "zerogap" fit to the reference curve. You also want CDendro to refrain from calculating any correlation values with this "zerogap" involved. In version 5 of CDendro you could fake a single zero ring measurment by putting two measuring points on exactly the same position with CooRecorder. Starting with CDendro7 there is a more "regular" way to handle "zerogaps"! 


then CDendro will insert that number of zero rings between that point and the next one. When you want to "jump over" a gap when measuring (as shown above), the normal procedure in CooRecorder is to plant a doublepoint (group mode).


In the diagram above a 21 rings wide segment to the left of the gap has a "Corr coeff" of 0.02! Now we rightclick two times in the gap area of the curve and observes how the "Corr coeff" changes! 
The "Corr coeff" for the 21 rings segment to the left of the gap has gone from 0.02 up to 0.59! We can now save the measument file with these two extra zero rings by using the menu command "Samples/Save coordinate data"
To update the image in CooRecorder, use the menu command "File/Reload". Rightclick in the curve diagram to insert an extra zero ring!
Note: You cannot remove "regular rings" only zero rings!
