Project Description

We propose to obtain new ice core accumulation records from Combatant Col., Mt. Waddington, in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. This, along with other existing records of precipitation variability along the western margin of North America, will be used to develop an updated and improved reconstruction of precipitation variability in this region over the last 200-1000 years, to address fundamental questions about Pacific decadal scale variability.
