Research Outcomes

CLIMAS developed the Paleoclimate Tool (please see the Tool section of this website) which allows stakeholders to access statewide reconstructions for Arizona and New Mexico, as well as individual reconstructions for each climate division.

Reconstructions of cool-season precipitation (November-April) for all climate divisions using both the linear regression and neural network procedures. The results of this work have been published by Ni et al., 2002 in The International Journal of Climatology.

Cool-season precipitation reconstruction data from this project are available for download from the NOAA Paleoclimatology Branch: http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/paleo/pubs/ni2002/ni2002.html
