Abstract

We examine instrumental meteorological records to compare recent precipitation regimes in the eastern and western Uinta Mountains region of Utah. The comparison demonstrates that, although the summer monsoon contributes a higher proportion of annual precipitation in the east, the two regions are...

Abstract

This article evaluates drought scenarios of the Upper Colorado River basin (UCRB) considering multiple drought variables for the past 500 years and positions the current drought in terms of the magnitude and frequency. Drought characteristics were developed considering water-year data of UCRB's...

Abstract

Two ring-width chronologies from Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menzeisii) and one from pinyon pine (Pinus edulis) were used to reconstruct mean annual discharge of Ashley Creek in the Uinta Mountains, Utah, for the years AD 1637-1970. A backward-elimination multiple linear-regression model identified...

Abstract

Tree-ring records spanning the past seven centuries from the central and southern Rocky Mountains were studied using wavelet analysis to examine multidecadal (>30-70 yr) patterns of drought variation. Fifteen tree-ring series were grouped into five regional composite chronologies based on shared ...

Abstract

Dendrochronological simulation of the effects of specified climatic change on tree growth in the Four Corners area (Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico) were made to provide a basis for evaluating hypotheses concerning environmental influences on the growth and decline of the Chacoan regional...

Abstract

Longitudinal and circumferential variation in the 13C/12C ratio of cellulose from leaves, twigs and wood is reported for Pinus edulis, P. monophylla, P. coulteri, P. ponderosa, P. muricata and Juniperus monosperma from sites in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado and California. Results may be...
