The Potential of Tree Rings in Eucalyptus pauciflora for Climatological and Hydrological Reconstruction

Brookhouse, Matthew; Lindesay, Janette; Brack, Cristopher

Description

We investigate the causes of variability in a tree-ring chronology comprising data from Eucalyptus pauciflora Sieb. Ex. Spreng. at the alpine treeline on the Kosciuszko Plateau in New South Wales, Australia. Following verification of crossdating in a subset of the available data, we found that ring width correlates significantly with net radiation, precipitation and mean minimum and maximum air temperature during the preceding winter and spring of the growing season. Our results for spring are...[Show more]
