Reconstructing Past Climate Using Tree-Ring Data from Ancient Bristlecone Pine

(Archived video of this webinar presentation.)

The annual growth rings from ancient Bristlecone Pine contain valuable information about climate variability extending back thousands of years. These proxies for variation in temperature and precipitation allow us to reconstruct past climates in a way that helps us understand the dynamics of the climate system and puts modern climate change into a long-term context.
