Analysis of Dendrochronological Variability and Associated Natural Climates in Eurasia – the last 10,000 years

Eds: Briffa KR & Mathews JA

The Holocene, vol. 12(6), 639-794, 2002

This special issue, a contribution to the PAGES/CLIVAR group, contains 12 papers which represent highlights from a European Commission research project: ‘Analysis of Dendrochronological Variability and Associated Natural Climates in Eurasia – the last 10000 years’ (ADVANCE-10K). The focus is on the climatic implications of dendrochronology and especially on developing an integrated, dendrochronological approach to high-resolution climatic reconstruction in the Holocene, with the ultimate aim of extending this to the global scale.
