Tomkins Lamoureux-2008-Reconstruction of climate and glacial history based on a comparison of varve and tree-ring records from Mirror Lake Northwest Territories Canada

This study compared the hydroclimatic signals recorded in annually laminated (varved) sediments and
tree rings within a small study area in the Selwyn Mountains of the southwestern Northwest
Territories/southeastern Yukon Territory border region of Canada. The records were located
immediately adjacent to each other and within 6 km of instrumental meteorological and hydrometric
records, which permitted a detailed analysis of climate in the area from AD 1704 to 1996. This study
explored the challenges of annually-resolved multi-proxy hydroclimate analyses and examined how
best to interpret the climate record given the differences in proxy formation and the respective signals.
