Summary
Abstract: Kathmandu tree-ring based temperature reconstructions and
instrumental weather data. Reconstructions for pre-monsoon (February-June)
and post-monsoon (October-February) seasons, for the periods 1546-1991 AD
and 1605-1991 AD, respectively.

ABSTRACT (from the online documentation):
We describe the development of a tree-ring chronology network in Nepal that is
suitable for reconstructing ... View entire text
