Several studies considered the ring width’s local minimum values as an additional sign of defoliation [16,33,34]. This method implies comparing absolute ring width in t year with ones on the interval from twidth to t + width years. If the proportion of trees with the local minimum in t year is ≥perc (a unit fraction), this serves as evidence in favor of probable defoliation in the year t [16,34]. From now on, this approach is referred to as the moving window method (MWM).
