mean sensitivity

  • Mean percentage change from each measured yearly ring value to the next (Douglass 1936 in Fritts 1976); that is, the average relative difference from one ring width to the next, calculated by dividing the absolute value of the differences between each pair of measurements by the average of the paired measurements, then averaging the quotients for all pairs in the tree-ring series. (Fritts 1976)
