Abstract. Proxy-based precipitation reconstruction is essential to study the inter-annual to decadal variability and underlying mechanisms beyond the instrumental period that is critically needed for climate modeling, prediction, and attribution. Based on 3014 annually resolved proxy series mainly derived from tree-ring and historical documents, we present a set of standard precipitation index (SPI) reconstructions for annual (Nov–Oct) covering entire Asia and for wet season (i.e., Nov–Apr for western Asia and May–Oct for the others) with the spatial resolution of 2.5° since 1700. To screen the optimal candidate proxies for SPI reconstruction in each grid from available proxies in its connected region with a homogeneous rainfall regime and similar precipitation variability, a new approach is develop by adopting the grid-location-dependent division derived from the instrumental SPI data. The validation shows that these reconstructions are effective for most of Asia. The assessment of data quality compared with gauge precipitation before calibration time indicates that our reconstruction has high quality to show the precipitation variability in most of the study areas except for few grids in western Russia, the coastal area of southeastern Asia and northern Japan.

Short summary
Proxy-based precipitation reconstruction is essential to study the inter-annual to decadal variability and underlying mechanisms beyond the instrumental period that is critically needed for climate modeling, prediction, and attribution. We present a set of standard precipitation index reconstructions for the annual and wet season over entire Asia with the spatial resolution of 2.5° since 1700, based on 3014 annually resolved proxy series mainly derived from tree-ring and historical documents.
