Tropical cyclones and the ecohydrology of Australia's recent continental-scale drought
The Big Dry, a recent drought over southeast Australia, began around 1997 and continued until 2011. We show that between 2002-2010, instead of a localized drought, there was a continent-wide reduction in water storage, vegetation and rainfall, spanning the northwest to the southeast of Australia. Trends in water storage and vegetation were assessed using Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data. Water storage and NDVI are shown to be...[Show more]
