In today's class, we'll start out final exercise, which will introduce you to an industry-standard software tool used to extract environmental signals from tree-ring data.
To get ready for our exercise, first download a copy of the program 'ARTSTAN' from the software page at the Lamont-Doherty Tree-Ring Program.
Second, you should also download a copy of the Dendrochronological Program Library (DPL), which we may need for our work on Thursday.
For Mac users running OX X Lion or later, download the most recent version of ARSTAN and the DPL from the Lamont Lab's FTP site:
Third, download a copy of the ARSTAN manual (arstan_description.pdf).
