Exploring the stationarity of Australian temperature, precipitation and pan evaporation records over the last century

Ukkola, Anna; Roderick, Michael; Barker, A.; Pitman, A. J.


Australia has experienced regional climate trends over recent decades with consequences for agriculture and water management. We investigate the statistical significance of these trends at annual and seasonal scales using the concept of stationarity. Using long-term high quality regional-scale observations of temperature, precipitation and pan evaporation (a measure of atmospheric evaporative demand), we find that despite highly significant increases in temperature that are non-stationary, few...[Show more]
