A review of past and projected changes in Australia's rainfall
Published Online: Mar 07 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.577
Outline of the regions that experience major rainfall trends in Australia. Northwest Australia (NWA; 10°–25°S, 110°–135°E), southeast Queensland (SEQ; 22°–30.5°S, east of 150.5°E), southwest of Western Australia (SWWA; southwest of the line joining 30°S, 115°E, and 35°S, 120°E), southeast Australia (SEA; 33°–44°S, 135°–154°E). The current article reviews the recent scientific literature on rainfall in the pre‐instrumental and instrumental period over Australia, including the underlying mechanisms (e.g., impact of anthropogenic changes, and natural variability) of the regional and seasonal variations and future projections. We discuss progress in detection and attribution and the future avenues in this field.
