Reconstruction of log-transformed Apr-July Flow of the Little Missouri

Detailed Description

Reconstruction of log-transformed April-July Flow of the Little Missouri River near Watford City ND, gage 06337000, in the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. This reconstruction is based on cores of plains cottonwood from the North Unit and from the lower Powder River near Moorhead, MT. Blue line is measured log of discharge, red line is reconstructed log of discharge, and black line is 15-yr smoothing spline. Spline is dashed where confidence in the reconstruction is low because of small sample size. Shaded area is the number of cores in each year. From Schook et al. 2016.
