Peak detection in sediment–charcoal records: impacts of alternative data analysis methods on fire-history interpretations

Abstract

Over the past several decades, high-resolution sediment–charcoal records have been increasingly used to reconstruct local fire history. Data analysis methods usually involve a decomposition that detrends a charcoal series and then applies a threshold value to isolate individual peaks, which are interpreted as fire episodes. Despite the proliferation of… (More)
