Håkan Grudd - Stockholm University, Department of Physical Geography

Description:

Tree-ring width (TRW) and maximum density (MXD) from Tornetrask in northern Sweden, covering the period AD 500 - 2004. Non-climatological growth trends in the data are removed using Regional Curve Standardization (RCS). A climate reconstruction based on MXD captures 63-64% of the inter-annual summer temperature variation.
