Abstract:
Five modern Nothofagus menziesii tree-ring chronologies, developed from sites near the alpine timberline, South Island, New Zealand, are presented. The properties of the chronologies are described; as a group they have high mean sensitivity values (mean of 0.31), moderate autocorrelation values (mean of 0.42) and moderate common variance values (mean of 31 %). One site, lying some 200 km distant from the others, is the least similar of the five chronologies. It is concluded that both the long length of N. menziesii chronologies and the proximity of trees to the alpine timberline present considerable potential for reconstructing palaeotemperatures.
