Summary
Abstract: The magnitude of recent warming, and the variability of climate on centennial-
millennial time scales are compromised by questions concerning the ability of
tree rings to capture low-frequency climate fluctuations. Annually laminated
stalagmite records can potentially provide a low-frequency climate archive
through variations in annual growth rate. Presented here is an initial attempt
to ... View entire text
