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 to

TREE-RING AND GLACIAL E VIDENCE F OR THE MEDIEVAL W ARM E POCH AND THE LITTLE ICE IN SOUTHERN S OUTH A MERICA AGE

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 to

Climatic change over the last millennium in Tasmania reconstructed from tree-rings

Tree-ring widths from millennium-old Huon pine (Lagarostrobos franklinii) trees have been used to reconstruct warm season (November-April) temperatures back to AD 900 for Tasmania. The reconstruction

Tree-ring based reconstructions of northern Patagonia precipitation since AD 1600

Long-term reconstructions (400 years) of seasonal and annual precipitation variations were developed for northern Patagonia east of the Andes using a new set of 16 tree ring-width chronologies from

Precipitation changes in the South American Altiplano since 1300 AD reconstructed by tree-rings

Throughout the second half of the 20th century, the Central Andes has experienced significant climatic and environmental changes characterized by a persistent warming trend, an increase in elevation

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. Fifteen

Variations of some Patagonian glaciers since the Late-Glacial

After a late-glacial readvance, the glaciers in Argentine Patagonia receded quickly, and by 10,000 B.P. at least one glacier was little larger than it is today. Three episodes of postglacial

Climate, site conditions, and tree growth in subtropical northwestern Argentina

TLDR
This study shows that dendroclimatological studies in the subtropics and growth of deciduous trees can be reliable climatological indicators.

Forest dynamics in south-central Chile

TLDR
The population structures and reproductive behaviours of the shade-tolerant trees suggest that in the absence of massive disturbance these species would replace the Nothofagus species at mid-elevations, while the composition of the Coastal forests is not as influenced by massive disturbances as in the Andes, the dependence for regeneration of some of the common trees on large canopy gaps, probably created by wind, indicates the influence of allogenic factors.

TLDR
The resulting curves are a measure of the fluctuations of these climatic variables and show similarities to other late Quaternary records from the Southern Hemisphere.
