Abstract

By using a single-year discrimination chronology detrended from a δ13C chronology from Chinese pine (Pinus tabulaeformis) tree rings and meteorological data, the δ13C-climatic response is analyzed. The results show that high-frequency δ13C is significantly related to both temperatures of June (with r= -0.65) and the total precipitation of May, June and July (r= -0.46). This suggests that δ13C records reflects some features of the East Asian summer monsoon. In addition, temperature departure for June is reconstructed from a transfer function developed with δ13C-climatic response.
