time series

  • General mathematical term referring to values of a parameter which may be plotted as a function of time. In dendrochronology, this term is less used than the concept to which it refers, as defined by "chronology". A dendrochronological time series may be continuous (when all annual values are represented) or discontinuous (when only extreme values are represented), in which case it is a skeleton plot or an "event series", e.g. a master fire chronology.
