Tree-ring width time series have been shown to be useful in conjunction with regression techniques for extending instrumental records of climate variables such as precipitation, drought severity and annual streamflow. This study uses tree-ring data derived fro 17 sites in northern California and eastern Oregon to develop reconstructions of annual Sacramento River streamflow for the period 1560-1980.
