Revelation! 178 years of rainfall records for SE Australia

From Jo Nova.

A new study by Ashcroft, Karoly and Dowdy pieces together an extraordinary 178 years of rainfall data from Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. This is a rare study that brings in much older data, looking at trends and extremes. This is pretty much the ultimate long term rainfall paper for South East Australia. Henceforth, there shalt be no more headlines about “unprecedented” rainfall or area’s drying out “due to climate change” unless an event rates against this data…

One more sleep to the Friedman Conference! Can people still get tickets?

    How long till the MET homogenise the data and exclude some records due to ‘concerns’ about the quality of the records?

    A useful paper. The only issue I have is with the statement that this is ultimate long-term rainfall paper for South East Australia. Coastal south east Australia maybe, but not inland. And Sydney rainfall has very different origins from Melbourne and Adelaide.

    Yes indeed. I’m assuming that the data hasn’t been ‘adjusted’, but on that assumption good on Karoly for doing some real scientific work.
