Table 3

Spectral analysis of the individual climatic indices and fur-count records. As in Table 2, the main periods are significant at the 99% level and secondary periods at the 95% level in MTM. The analysis after removing the trend yields the same periods, except 170 years, in the fur-count records and the NHT index.
