Summary
Abstract: We have produced three sets of reconstructed Pacific Basin SST field and error
estimates, based on three sets of observations. SST anomaly values
reconstructed on the basis of proxies are small, and the estimated error values
are large. These reconstructions each use limited data sets consisting of a
uniform type of proxies (specifically, stable isotopes of oxygen in corals;
ring width and density ... View entire text
