Abstract:

Ring width chronologies are obtained from sites throughout North America and Europe. When the network of sites has sufficient aereal coverage the hemisphere-wide variations in the recorded climate will be calibrated with variations in growth and these calibrations used to reconstruct past climate for time periods when tree-ring data are available but climatic data do not exist. Progress on collection and processing of data is described and developing plans for international cooperative efforts are discussed.
