Abstract
[1] Intra-annual variation in the stable isotope ratios of precipitation imparts a time-dependent isotopic signal to continental hydrological and ecological systems. This variation is forced by seasonal climate cycles, with temperature and precipitation intensity each driving isotopic seasonality in different parts of the globe. In order to better characterize and understand the isotopic seasonality of precipitation and to advance applications such as the inversion of isotope/climate relationships for paleoclimate seasonality reconstruction, these relationships are analyzed using a database of precipitation isotope ratio observations and gridded maps. The result...
