Summary
Abstract: ABSTRACT (from the online documentation):

Temperature variations over Europe are reconstructed for a 6-month "summer"
season from April to September for the period 1750-1850 using a network of
maximum latewood density chronologies of coniferous trees. Around 44% of the
variance of the whole temperature grid was explained in calibration.
Independent verification indicates that over the ... View entire text
