Abstract

We present a drought reconstruction for southeastern China based on a tree-ring width chronology of Cryptomeria fortunei developed from the two sampling sites in central Fujian. A reconstruction of July-February drought variability, spanning AD 1855–2011, was developed by calibrating tree-ring width...

Abstract: We present a drought reconstruction for southeastern China based on a tree-ring width chronology of Cryptomeria fortunei developed from the two sampling sites in central Fujian. A reconstruction of July-February drought variability, spanning AD 1855–2011, was developed by calibrating tree-ring width data with the Palmer drought severity index (PDSI). The analysis of links between our PDSI reconstruction and the large-scale regional climatic variation shows that there is a relationship of regional drought variation with the East Asian Summer Monsoon (EASM) intensity.
