Quantitative temperature and monsoon precipitation data sets for the past 5000 years in northern China

In this study, the beilianchi lake of Liupanshan in the Loess Plateau of northern China was selected to quantitatively reconstruct the high resolution (~ 30yr) warm season temperature series of northern China in the past 5000 years based on the gdgts index and the fitting equation established by reanalysis of global lake surface sediment gdgts data. In the past 5000 years, the overall temperature in northern China showed a downward trend, in which the temperature of 3000 bc-200 ad decreased slowly by ~ 0.5 ℃ and then decreased rapidly by ~ 4 ℃ after 200 ad, accompanied by four Millennium scale cold events of 2-3 ℃. At the same time, we reconstructed the monsoon precipitation changes since the middle late Holocene by using the single hydrogen isotope in the same borehole sediments. The monsoon precipitation in northern China showed a downward trend in the past 5000 years, accompanied by three obvious 100 year scale strong precipitation drought fluctuations.
