On the Horizontal Scale of Elevation Dependence of Australian Monthly Precipitation

Sharples, Jade; Hutchinson, Michael; Jellett, Damian


Determination of the scale of the interaction between precipitation and topography is important for the accurate interpolation of rainfall in mountainous areas and also provides insight into the physical processes involved. In this paper, trivariate thin-plate smoothing splines are used to investigate the scale of interaction between monthly precipitation and topography by interpolating monthly rainfall over three subregions of the Australian continent, incorporating different climatic...[Show more]
