Research Highlight

Reconstruction of soil water oxygen isotope values from tree ring cellulose and its implications for paleoclimate studies

This study shows (a) good agreement in spatial ranges between observed and estimated δsw data suggesting its suitability for a representative parameter, and (b) reconstructed δsw largely depend on soil moisture content modulated by regional evaporation regimes. Considering a growing importance of measurement of recycled soil moisture and its ensuing role in rainfall amount, a method to reconstruct soil moisture isotope as presented in this work will enable application of land hydrological models to the past.
