Abstract:
A principal components model for analyzing tree-ring data is presented which allows one to examine site heterogeneity and to compose chronologies of a new kind in a conceptually unified and computationally efficient manner. Using this model, one can develop chronologies that correlate better with local climate data than the standard chronology for a site and which can be tested for time stability within the framework of the model. The numerical procedures are described and applied to a specific tree site to illustrate their use and their usefulness. The tree-ring width data tested is from a white spruce (Picea glauca [Moench.] Voss) site in the forest-tundra ecotone of Yukon Territory. The results from the study of this and other sites indicate that more climatic information can be extracted using these techniques.
