The data consist of stable water isotope composition in the rivers , lakes, soils and flooded areas in the Westerns Siberia Lowlands (WSL). Sampling area encompassed a 1700 km south-north transect spanning from approx. 56⁰N to 68⁰N in latitude and 74⁰E to 84⁰E in longitude. Samples were collected during multiple field campaigns between February 2014 and November 2016.
The dataset in produced as a part of the JPI/NERC funded SIWA project (grant no: NE/M019896/1); “Climate impact on the carbon emission and export from Siberian inland waters”.
On the day of data deposition to EIDC, the dataset has resulted in two publications submitted to peer-review:
Ala-aho et al., Using stable isotopes to assess surface water sources, hydrological connectivity and runoff generation in the Western Siberia Lowlands, J. Hydrol.
Ala-aho et al., Permafrost and lakes control river isotope composition across a boreal-arctict ransect in the Western Siberia lowlands, Environ. Res. Lett.

The water samples for analysis were collected by the Tomsk State University, Umeå Univeristy and Géosciences Environnement Toulouse. The samples were analysed for their isotope composition, and the dataset was compiled by the University of Aberdeen. See supporting documentation for further information.
