Summary
Abstract: Tree Ring reconstructions of Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) across the
continental United States and bordering areas of Canada and Mexico. Drought
variability study for the last ca. 100 years based on instrumental data, and
on the last several centuries and millennia based on paleoclimatic proxy data.
Hydrological conditions are displayed using the Palmer Drought Severity Index
(PDSI). ... View entire text
