Abstract:
Skeleton plotting is an established manual technique for representing the relative narrowness of tree rings in a single radius. These plots can be used as a visual aid to crossdating. This paper describes a method for deriving these plots by computer. The method uses a low-pass digital filter, running means, and standard deviations of ring-width measurements. When the manual and computer plots are compared for the same series, approximately 85% agreement is found. Examples of results are presented for specimens from sensitive, moderate, and complacent sites. FORTRAN program listings are included for two subroutines for (a) identifying small rings and (b) producing the plot.
