Australian seasonal rainfall for the past 400 years based on natural archives. Annual deciles show dry and wet years individually for the warm season (October-March) and cool season (April-September). Australia's major climatic regions are the eight natural resource management regions (NRM regions): Central Slopes, East Coast, Murray Basin, Monsoonal North, Rangelands, Southern Slopes, South and Southwestern Flatlands and the Wet Tropics. This visualisation is based on Freund et al 2017 (Freund, M., Henley, B. J., Karoly, D. J., Allen, K. J. and Baker, P. J.: Multi-century cool- and warm-season rainfall reconstructions for Australia's major climatic regions, Clim. Past, 13(12), 1751–1770, doi:10.5194/cp-13-1751-2017, 2017). The NRM regional time series of rainfall and the reconstructions are available from figshare: figshare. com/s/a73ff374933b07c7e13c, with data permanently available at doi.org/10.4225/49/59e3ee30cdbbc (Freund, 2017).
