We used daily rainfall and streamflow time series from two large catchments in the seasonal tropics of Queensland, Australia to investigate the hydrological impacts of woodland clearing. The Comet catchment (16,440km 2) had 45% of the native woodland cleared during the mid-1960s. In the Upper Burdekin catchment (17,299km 2) clearing decreased native woodland extent from 83% to 58% between 1998 and 2009. An earlier modelling study concluded that clearing in the Comet catchment increased annual...[Show more]
