Summary
Abstract: This metadata references the scientific article: "Reconstructed warm season
temperatures for Nome, Seward Peninsula, Alaska", which can be download from
here. Authors: Rosanne DArrigo, Erika Mashig, David Frank, Gordon Jacoby, and
Rob Wilson. Understanding of past climate variability in the Bering Strait
region and adjacent land areas is limited by a paucity of long instrumental and
paleoclimatic records. Here we describe a reconstruction of May-August
temperatures for Nome, Seward Peninsula, Alaska based on maximum latewood
density data which considerably extends the available climatic information. The
reconstruction shows warm conditions in the late 1600s and middle-20th century
and cooler conditions in the 1800s. The summer of 1783, coinciding with the
Laki, Iceland volcanic event, is among the coldest in the reconstruction.
Statistically significant relationships with the North Pacific Index and
Bering-Chukchi sea surface temperatures indicate that the Seward tree-ring data
are potentially useful as long-term indices of atmosphere-ocean variability in
the region. CRN003, PI Dr. Brian Luckman.
