Summary
Abstract: Water Year Annual Precipitation Reconstruction at El Malpais National Monument
near Grants, New Mexico. The tree-ring chronology associated with this
reconstruction can be found in the holdings of the International Tree-Ring
Data Bank (ITRDB) as NM572.CRN (standard chronology on which the
reconstruction was developed) and NM572R.CRN (the residual tree-ring
chronology).

The reconstruction is provided in two different formats. The first is the
standard decadal format often used in tree-ring research, which should allow
this file to be imported into any tree-ring program. The second is a simple
column format (year followed by value) that should allow this file to be
imported into any spreadsheet for further evaluation.
