Master ring-width and carbon isotope time-series for DK. A) The mean, raw ring-width chronology, showing a gradual decrease in annual growth over the 52-year record. B) The same chronology broken into two portions using segmented regression, showing 26 years of relatively constant growth followed by a growth-rate decline after 1983 (Black, dashed box indicates 95% CI of 1983 break-point). C) The separately determined carbon isotope record, showing the gradual decline in δ13C from 1983-2009/11.
