This site stores nothing other than an automatically generated session ID in the cookie; no other information is captured.
In general, only the information that you provide, or the choices you make while visiting a web site, can be stored in a cookie.
To provide access without cookies would require the site to create a new session for every page you visit, which slows the system down to an unacceptable level.
Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer, and only the site that created the cookie can read it.
To understand how tree rings can be used to build a timeline, you will simulate this process.
You will determine the ages of two samples of wood found in ancient Native American cliff dwellings.
For some old trees, so much of the centre is missing that their age cannot be directly determined.
Instead, estimates are made based on the tree's size and presumed growth rate.
