Figure S1. Various records of precipitation and Tmax in the study region. (a) mean annual precipitation Map of (dots) locations where tree-ring chronologies were collected. Brown and blue dots represent semi-arid and semi-humid sites, respectively.
Figure S2. Panels (a) and (b) show box plots of correlation coefficients of RWI with precipitation and daily maximum temperatures (Tmax) during all 3-month periods in a 24-month window that begins in the January of the year before that growing season.
Figure S3.Same as Fig. S2, but for potential evaporation (PET) from Sheffield et al. (2012).
