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.
