Tree-ring estimates of Pacific decadal climate variability
Abstract Decadal-scale oscillatory modes of atmosphere-ocean variability have recently been identified in instrumental studies of the Pacific sector. The regime shift around 1976 is one example ofExpand

Disturbance regime and disturbance interactions in a Rocky Mountain subalpine forest
The spatial and temporal patterns of fire, snow avalanches and spruce beetle outbreaks were investigated in Marvine Lakes Valley in the Colorado Rocky Mountains in forests of Picea engelmannii, AbiesExpand

Continental-scale temperature variability during the past two millennia
Past global climate changes had strong regional expression. To elucidate their spatio-temporal pattern, we reconstructed past temperatures for seven continental-scale regions during the past one toExpand

Unusual Southern Hemisphere tree growth patterns induced by changes in the Southern Annular Mode
Recent changes in the summer climate of the Southern Hemisphere extra-tropics are primarily related to the dominance of the positive phase of the Southern Annular Mode1, 2. This shift in theExpand

Large-Scale Temperature Changes across the Southern Andes: 20th-Century Variations in the Context of the Past 400 Years
Long-term trends of temperature variations across the southern Andes (37–55° S) are examined using a combination of instrumental and tree-ring records. A critical appraisal of surface air temperatureExpand

Tree-ring and glacial evidence for the medieval warm epoch and the little ice age in southern South America
A tree-ring reconstruction of summer temperatures from northern Patagonia shows distinct episodes of higher and lower temperature during the last 1000 yr. The first cold interval was from A.D. 900 toExpand

High-resolution palaeoclimatology of the last millennium: a review of current status and future prospects
This review of late-Holocene palaeoclimatology represents the results from a PAGES/CLIVAR Intersection Panel meeting that took place in June 2006. The review is in three parts: the principalExpand

FIRE HISTORY IN NORTHERN PATAGONIA: THE ROLES OF HUMANS AND CLIMATIC VARIATION
The effects of humans and climatic variation on fire history in northern Patagonia, Argentina, were examined by dating fire scars on 458 trees at 21 sites in rain forests of Fitzroya cupressoides andExpand

RECENT TRENDS IN TREE-RING RECORDS FROM HIGH ELEVATION SITES IN THE ANDES OF NORTHERN PATAGONIA
A new set of tree-ring records from the Andes of northern Patagonia, Argentina (41° S) was used to evaluate recent (i.e., last 250 years) regional trends in tree growth at upper treeline. FifteenExpand
