Tree-Ring Patterns: A Key-Year Technique for Crossdating
Abstract:Dates and sequences of events that are potentially manifest in tree-ring patterns can be established, compared among sites, and crossdated by matching the patterns of key years. A key year is one in which the widths of tree rings relative to those of the preceding year (greater, less, or equal) are in agreement in a significant number of observed trees.
