Abstract:
Sixteen modern Nothofagus solandri tree-ring chronologies, developed from sites near the alpine timberline, South Island, New Zealand are presented. The statistical properties of the chronologies are similar, having high mean sensitivity values (mean of 0.34), moderate autocorrelation values (mean of 0.50), and high common variance values (mean of 42 %). However, the chronologies are mainly less than 300 years in length. Examination of interchronology variation suggests that the similarity between two chronologies decreases with increasing distance. It is concluded that these chronologies offer considerable potential for reconstructing palaeoclimates, especially palaeotemperature.
