This analytical document shows that stable isotope ratios can be used to monitor changes in the character of precipitation in response to periodic variability or changes in climate. This study also provides observational constraints for an improved simulation of convection in models simulating present and future climate models and a better understanding of isotope variations in proxy archives, such as speleothems and tropical ice.
