Tree Ring Chronology Indexes and Reconstructions of Precipitation in Central Iowa, USA, CDIAC NDP-002
Entry ID: CDIAC_NDP2


Summary
Abstract: This data package includes a reconstruction of annual precipitation for central Iowa for the period 1680-1979 based on tree ring chronologies. These data are useful indicators of the precipitation/drought history of the region over a three-century period. The indices have been used to estimate, or reconstruct, past values of numerous climatic and hydrologic variables, including large-scale ... View entire text
