The assessment of pre-instrumental climate variability during the Common Era (CE) has been a key element of IPCC reports and was recently emphasized by showing a single temperature reconstruction as the first figure in the 2021 Summary for Policymakers (SPM). This reconstruction is derived from dozens of proxy records including tree-rings, corals, ice cores and sediments, and displays the course of global temperatures over the past 2000 years. Show casing a single study for paleoclimate co...

"Maximum latewood density (MXD) is the most sensitive proxy for reconstructing temperature variations over past centuries to millennia. However, the development of long MXD chronologies has lagged far behind that of ring width chronologies, especially in North America. Among a handful of millennial MXD records across the northern hemisphere, only a few are from North American sites.In this study, we fill this data gap by developing a millennial MXD data network from an unprecedented...

Tree-ring widths represent the most commonly used proxy to reconstruct the climate of the last millennium at high resolution, thanks to their large-scale availability. The approach often relies on a relationship between tree-ring width series and climate estimated on the basis of a linear regression. The underlying linearity and stationarity assumptions may be inadequate. Dendroclimatic process-based models, such as MAIDEN, may be able to overcome some of the limitations of the statistical...

Tree-ring records have been used extensively to reconstruct past streamflow variability.  Annually resolved estimates for several centuries prior to observations, and in some cases millennia, have been produced from dendroclimatic proxies.  However, despite an often strong hydroclimatic signal embedded in the rings, some factors limit the skill of such reconstructions, including human interference with the hydrological cycle.  We examine the relationship between local output...

In temperature-limited ecosystems such as high-elevation forests, rising temperatures and increasing carbon dioxide can result in a greening effect, and changes in the phenology and tree growth rates of the forests. We assessed the long-term trend dynamics (greenness and land surface phenology) using the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and compared them with data from an existing dendrochronological network that came from eight protected mountains in the Trans-Mexican Volcani...
