A 650 year-old Douglas-fir stands just east of Dillon Reservoir. It and 15 other very old trees were sampled to develop the Dillon (DIL) tree-ring chronology, which has been used to reconstruct the annual flow of the Blue River.
Update July 2009:
The Colorado TreeFlow web pages have been incorporated into the newly expanded
TreeFlow web resource.
TreeFlow homepage: http://treeflow.info/
The new TreeFlow is organized by
major hydrologic basin, so the streamflow reconstructions for Colorado and related
information can be accessed through the appropriate basin home page:
The streamflow reconstructions for Colorado archived at the NOAA World Data Center for Paleoclimatology are listed below. (These, and additional reconstructions, are also archived through the new TreeFlow pages above)
