Selecting and characterizing tree ring chronologies for dendro climatic analysis

Selecting and characterizing tree ring chronologies for dendro climatic analysis

Tree Ring Bulletin 35: 31-40

A widely spaced grid of tree-ring chronologies most suitable for dendroclimatic analysis of W North America is selected objectively on the basis of numbers in the sample, length in years and site locations; statistical characteristics of the chronologies; and correlation of chronologies with those on neighboring sites. The chronology statistics are then analyzed to characterize the quality of the selected set. The procedures used are recommended for future climatic analysis to assure objectivity in the selection of quality tree-ring data and to allow comparisons of the statistics for new chronologies to the established data sets.
