Summary
Abstract: The state of Chihuahua lies in an arid to semiarid zone in the NW central plain
of Mexico. Its agricultural economy is highly vulnerable to frequent droughts.
In this study, we reconstruct winter-spring precipitation from 1647-1992 using
6 earlywood width chronologies of Douglas fir from around Chihuahua. The
tree-ring data explain 56% of the winter-spring precipitation variance in a
linear ... View entire text
