Spatial foot print of fire in the Jemez Mountains 1729 as recorded by tree ring fire scars.

Detailed Description

The large spatial foot print of fire in the Jemez Mountains in the year 1729, as recorded by tree-ring fire scars. The circles are individual trees that were scarred in 1729, with the colors indicating the fire-scar position, or fire seasonality. The predominance of early season scars indicates a spring/early-summer fire.  The grey x's indicate trees that were not scarred. The histogram in the upper right indicates the relative elevation of the fire-scarred trees.
