Abstract

Results of the response function analysis have several important implications for the use of bigcone spruce chronologies to reconstruct climate history in southern California. Growth is positively associated with precipitation in all months of the current year, so that tree-ring indices should serve as good surrogates of total annual rainfall and runoff. However, growth is also related to spring and summer temperatures. The climate-growth system for bigcone spruce is relative by simple and consistent at a site, and thus especially appropriate for dendroclimatic reconstruction
