Abstract

The AA. present a six-species comparison of tree-ring growth response to extremes (below the 30th and above the 70th percentile) in temperature, precipitation, and corresponding streamflow. Sensitivity was determined using contingency scores obtained by comparing tree-ring growth at different lags with hydroclimatic observations from the Upper Colorado River Basin in the southwestern United States. The scoring method proposed in this study for the analysis of tree-ring records proved to be a useful tool for evaluating ring-width sensitivity to extreme climatic forcing
