Southwestern USA Linear Regression and Neural Network Precipitation Reconstructions, NOAA/NCDC/WDC Paleoclimatology
Entry ID: NOAA_NCDC_PALEO_2002-080

Abstract: This data set consists of a comparison of the linear regression and
neural network models for precipitation reconstruction from a network
of tree ring chronologies. Data include the reconstructed annual
precipitation for each climate division in Arizona and New Mexico from
linear regression (LR) and artificial neural network (NN) models.
