Summary
Abstract: Northeastern Utah June Palmer Drought Severity Index reconstruction based on
tree ring chronologies in and around the Uinta Basin.

ABSTRACT (from the online documentation:
These data are reconstructed Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI)
values for the Uinta Basin region (Utah Climate Division 6) of northeastern
Utah from 1405-2000 AD. Estimates for PDSI values prior to the instrumental
