The dataset of 4000 years paleofire reconstruction in Lubei Plain was developed based on in situ survey and experiment, integrated with the related references and Principal Component Analysis (PCA). The dataset includes the following data at Changxu profile: (1) the geolocation of the profile; (2) age, depth and sedimentation rate; (3) magnetic susceptibility with low frequency; (4) loss on ignition; (5) concentrations of char、soot、black carbon; (6) geochemical elements; (7) multiple climate indicators; (8) PCA data. The dataset is archived in .xlsx and .shp formats, and consists of 8 files with data size of 74.3 KB (Compressed into one file with 69 KB). The analysis paper was published in the Journal of Arid Land Resources and Environment, Vol. 37, No. 11, 2023.
