Overview

Summer Precipitation for the England and Wales region, 1201 - 2000CE, from Stable Oxygen Isotopes in oak tree rings

The data collection includes:

  • Precipitation reconstruction (May-August) 1201 - 2000CE (variance scaled against England and Wales Precipitation record).

  • The raw stable isotope chronology.

Details on the composition and development of the isotope chronology are provided in the following papers:

Image above: May to August precipitation sums for England and Wales, 1201-2000CE. The period 1766 to 2000 is the England and Wales Precipitation series, before 1766 the values are reconstructed using stable oxygen isotope ratios from oak tree rings. The dashed line is the pre-20th century average. Final years of decades are marked in black. An alternative version of this figure, using only the reconstruction, is included in the Supplementary information (Figure S1 of Loader et al. 2020).
