NOAA site deals in dry data

A new National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Web site is giving users insight into using archeological remains to learn about past droughts.

Found at www.ngdc.noaa.gov/paleo/drought, the site, North American Drought: A Paleo Perspective, discusses the climate that existed before accurate weather data was collected.

NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center in Boulder, Colo., sponsors the site, which details how researchers use tree rings, lake sediment and other data to learn about weather patterns.
