Abstract:
EXPERIMENTAL DENDROCLIMATIC RECONSTRUCTION OF THE SOUTHERN OSCILLATION This file documents reconstruction of the winter (DJF) season of Allan's version of the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI). It was reconstructed by using the factor scores from a Principal Components Analysis (PCA) of time t and selected t-1 and t+1 lags of 14 tree-ring chronologies from northern Mexico (Durango and Chihuahua), the southwestern U.S.A. (Arizona, Utah and New Mexico) and Java, Indonesia plus the first two factor scores from a network of 9 chronologies in OK and TX as independent variables. All chronologies were compiled from indices of tree growth (earlywood or total ring width) detrended to remove biological trends (Cook 1985). The dependent variable was winter (DJF) average SOI compiled by R. Allan, based on normalized Tahiti minus Darwin sea level pressure, multiplied by 10 (Allan et al. 1996), adjusted so the mean of the period 1879-1977 equals 0.0. The reconstruction is the basis for the paper (D.W. Stahle et al. 1998).
