Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of reconstructions of July Palmer Hydrologic
Drought Index (PHDI) data for two southern Virginia Coastal and
Piedmont and two northern and central North Carolina coastal climate
divisions for the months of July for the time period 1185 A.D. to 1984
A.D. The Virginia and North Carolina sites are in proximity to the
Jamestown (Virginia) and Roanoke (North Carolina) Colonies. The data
set includes details of the tree-ring data used to derive the
reconstructions, including mortality data for the two colonies.
