DescriptionComputer programs written in GAUSS(TM) for IBM compatible personal computers are described that perform dynamic tree ring modeling with climate data; the underlying theory is also described. The programs and a separate users manual are available from the authors, although users must have the GAUSS software package on their personal computer. An example application of the programs is given, and a number of relevant references should provide enough information for users to decide if they are interested in this system. The purpose of these programs is to make these techniques easily available to the community of tree ring analysts for application and further development.
