Abstract:
The separating distance over which tree-ring chronologies are significantly correlated is investigated. Any chronology occuring within a radius of 161 km of another is estimated to contain at least half of the common variance occurring at zero separating distance. The separating distance of 161 km is used to calculate the number of nonoverlapping chronology equivalents present within the 40 -, 65 -, and 89-chronology western North American grids. The density of chronologies is calculated for these three grids in various ways. The results give conservative density estimates of five, seven, and eight sites per Mkm² for the three different tree-ring grids.
