Reconstructed Temperature and Precipitation from Tree Rings in North America; Paleoclimate Data
Entry ID: EARTH_LAND_NGDC_PALEO_RECONSTRC

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains files of reconstructed temperature and
precipitation data, derived from tree ring data by Dr. Harold
Fritts of the University of Arizona. The reconstructions were
made for a network of weather observation stations in the
United States. For a discussion of the methodology of climate
reconstructions, and potential limits in their application,
