      The tree-ring characteristics of material used in a 35-tree, 265-year modern oak chronology from a site in North Wales are discussed. Three methods of standardisation are compared and temporal variation in chronology statistics examined. A response function using rainfall data from a station very close to the tree site related 45% of the chronology variance to climate and 73% to climate plus prior growth.
