General characteristics of temperature variation in China during the last two millennia
Three alternate China-wide temperature composites covering the last 2000 years were established by combining multiple paleoclimate proxy records obtained from ice cores, tree rings, lake sedimentsExpand

Summer temperature and summer monsoon history on the Tibetan plateau during the last 400 years recorded by tree rings
[1] Global circulation models predict an increase of summer monsoon precipitation in High Asia as a consequence of global warming. The shortness of available meteorological records requires theExpand

Tree ring density-based summer temperature reconstruction for the central Hengduan Mountains in southern China
article i nfo Variations in ring width and wood density of Picea brachytyla were used to develop high-resolution climate proxy data to extend the existing climate record in the central HengduanExpand

Growth-ring variations of dwarf shrubs reflect regional climate signals in alpine environments rather than topoclimatic differences
Aim  Our main aim is to determine if ring-width variations in Empetrum hermaphroditum reflect regional or local topoclimate signals in an alpine environment. In the case that topoclimate provides theExpand

Late Holocene temperature fluctuations on the Tibetan Plateau
Abstract Proxy data of palaeoclimate, like ice cores, tree rings and lake sediments, document aspects of climate changes on the Tibetan Plateau during the last 2000 years. The results show that theExpand

Dendroecology of dwarf shrubs in the high mountains of Norway – A methodological approach
Dwarf shrubs cover large areas above the upper tree line in mountain areas. Their potential for dendroecological analyses has not yet been explored comprehensively. In order to study the growthExpand

Spatial and temporal temperature trends on the Yunnan Plateau (Southwest China) during 1961–2004
Monthly mean (TEM), maximum (Tmax) and minimum (Tmin) surface air temperatures at 119 meteorological stations on the Yunnan Plateau (YP, Southwest China) were analysed for temporal trends and spatialExpand

Dendrochronological analysis of urban trees: climatic response and impact of drought on frequently used tree species
Key messageDistinct species-specific differences were found in the response to temperature, precipitation and the self-calibrated Palmer Drought Severity Index that are confirmed by pointer yearExpand

Tree-ring based drought reconstruction in the central Hengduan Mountains region (China) since A.D. 1655
We developed four tree ring-width chronologies of three species (Picea likiangensis Pritz, Tsuga dumosa (D. Don) Eichler and Abies ernestii Rehd.) in the central Hengduan Mountains, north-westernExpand
