Quantitative reconstruction of hydroclimate variability over the last 200 kyr in the West Mediterranean


The data show the quantitative annual, winter and summer precipitation reconstructions (mm/yr) from southern Iberian Peninsula for the last ~200,000 years (Camuera et al., 2022), based on the previously published fossil pollen data from the Padul-15-05 lake sediment record (Ramos-Román et al., 2018a, b; Camuera et al., 2019, 2021). The Padul-15-05 record, located in southern Spain (37º00'39''N, 3º36'14''W, 726 masl), was retrieved during summer 2015 from the current edge of the lake using a Rolatec RL-48-L hydraulic percussion coring machine. The quantitative precipitation reconstructions were performed using the performance statistics of the Weighted Averaging-Partial Least Squares (WA-PLS)-based transfer function model under cross-validation. This pollen-based transfer function method was run using the C2 program (version 1.7.7) with a modern pollen climate calibration model from the Eurasian Modern Pollen Database v2 (EMPDv2) (Davis et al., 2020).
