Have there been any attempts to look at fire scars and correlate them to these especially drier times periods? Yes you have issues with Native American set fires and suppression by Europeans, but would some old Pitch Pines on some drier ridge perhaps have escaped most of that and reflect a more "nature" burn regime. How about proxys for rainfall [sedimentation]?
