The understanding of past millennium climate change is very important. Due to the lack of continuously annual resolution records, the temperature characteristics in the low‐latitude regions of East Asia (LLREA) during past several centuries are still unknown. Using tree‐ring width chronology from Taiwan, an island located in the western Pacific region and in southeastern China, February–October mean temperature from 1380 to 2007 AD was reconstructed. Spatial correlation analysis indicated that… 
A Tree-Ring-Based Assessment of Pinus armandii Adaptability to Climate Using Two Statistical Methods in Mt. Yao, Central China during 1961–2016
Assessing the characteristics and limiting factors of tree growth is of practical significance for environmental studies and climatic reconstruction, especially in climate transition zones. In this
Time Series Analysis in Climatology and Related Sciences
Most geophysical processes are random, and their analysis should be basedupon theory of randomprocesses and information theory. Themain tool of analysis here is the autoregressive modeling of scalar


Annual temperatures during the last 2485 years in the mid-eastern Tibetan Plateau inferred from tree rings
By combining living trees and archaeological wood, the annual mean temperatures were reconstructed based on ring-width indices of the mid-eastern Tibetan Plateau for the past 2485 years. The climate
Temperature variations recovered from tree-rings in the middle Qilian Mountain over the last millennium
Based on the cross-dated tree-ring samples collected from the middle Qilian Mountain, a standard ring-width chronology had been developed, which covered the period AD 1000 to 2000. The correlations
Regional difference of the start time of the recent warming in Eastern China: prompted by a 165-year temperature record deduced from tree rings in the Dabie Mountains
Tree-ring studies from tropical to subtropical regions are rarer than that from extratropical regions, which greatly limit our understanding of some critical climate change issues. Based on the
Asymmetric variability between maximum and minimum temperatures in Northeastern Tibetan Plateau: Evidence from tree rings
Ecological systems in the headwaters of the Yellow River, characterized by hash natural environmental conditions, are very vulnerable to climatic change. In the most recent decades, this area greatly
Tree ring inferred summer temperature variations over the last millennium in western Himalaya, India
We report the first millennium-long reconstruction of mean summer (May–June–July–August) temperature extending back to AD 940 derived from tree-ring width data of Himalayan pencil juniper (Juniperus
Reconstruction of early spring temperature for central Japan from the tree‐ring widths of Hinoki cypress and its verification by other proxy records
We describe the results of a dendroclimatic study in central Japan using ring width data from living trees of Hinoki cypress. February–April temperatures were reconstructed for the period AD
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 to
Growth–climate relationships along an elevation gradient on a southeast-facing mountain slope in the semi-arid eastern Qaidam Basin, northeastern Tibetan Plateau
Key messageBoth temperature and precipitation are strong factors of radial tree growth at all elevations in the semi-arid study area, except at the upper treeline where temperature becomes the major
Regional-scale winter-spring temperature variability and chilling damage dynamics over the past two centuries in southeastern China
Winter-spring cold extreme is a kind of serious natural disaster for southeastern China. As such events are recorded in discrete documents, long and continuous records are required to understand
Observed and projected climate change in Taiwan
SummaryThis study examined the secular climate change characteristics in Taiwan over the past 100 years and the relationship with the global climate change. Estimates for the likelihood of future
