Here the AA. present 2 nearly continuous time-series of δD and δO 18 of atmospheric water vapor (δv) measured at hourly intervals in surface air in Beijing and above a winter wheat canopy in Shijiazhuang using in-situ measurement technique. During the precipitation events, the δv values in both Beijing and Shijiazhuang were in the state of equilibrium with precipitation water, revealing the influence of precipitation processes. These datasets highlight also how the atmospheric processes, such as air mass advection, evapotranspiration and entrainment from the free atmosphere other than precipitation, influenced the surface δv on various time-scales including event-based precipitation, seasonal and diurnal scales. Especially, the effect of vegetation, namely transpiration, was elucidated by comparing the δv in Beijing and Shijiazhuang under similar climate conditions
