Summer Temperature


DATA SETS    

 

 

Reconstructed summer temperatures, for 24 gridpoints in the US spanning 1850 1983, and also 1600- 1983.  Temperatures have been reconstructed through forms of tree-ring data (ring widths, ring densities and carbon and oxygen isotopes).  

Spatial Coverage:

Western United States

Temporal Coverage:

1850-1983

1600-1983

Data:

Data is in anomaly format, convert to Celsius, by multiplying each value by the standard deviation, adding the mean, subtracting 1000, then dividing by 10. This will give values relative to the 1951-70 base period. Data is in format of station number, standard deviation, mean, then the temperature anomalies.
