Appendix of Drought Reconstruction Datasets

This appendix contains links to reconstructions of drought-related variables such as the Palmer Drought Severity Index, precipitation, streamflow, and lake levels for high-resolution records at scales of centuries to millennia. Datasets include data featured in this Drought Perspective as well as all high-resolution drought reconstructions currently available in the World Data Center for Paleoclimatology. The links for centuries-scale records are listed first, by proxy and by variable, and are organized by geographic area, large to small, with U.S. and North American records followed by those for other parts of the world. The millennial-length and longer records follow and are organized in the same way.
