Northern Hemisphere and Regional Temperature Reconstructions
Entry ID: NOAA_NGDC_PALEO_TREERINGDENSITY

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of new reconstructions of northern
extratropical summer temperatures for nine subcontinental-scale
regions and a composite series representing quasi "Northern
Hemisphere" temperature change over the last 600 years. These series
are based on tree ring density data that have been processed using a
novel statistical technique (age band decomposition) designed to
preserve ... View entire text
