Whilst the combined P-E ratio is significant, an emphasis is placed upon examining individual meteorological components which determine the TWB. Hence rainfall and pan evaporation characteristics are analysed on both monthly and seasonal timescales within the 'Growing Season'. Trends in rainfall are fairly consistent across all stations with ongoing declines generally observed in all months except November, most notable in April, May and October. Pan evaporation displays much more variation between stations with both strong positive and negative trends evident throughout the station network in each season. The varying trends in pan evaporation between the stations suggest that the same large scale conditions can result in vastly different effects locally, owing to topographic and geographic factors. The influence of El Niño - Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) on pan evaporation is widespread and statistically significant during Winter and Spring. The Southern Annular Mode (SAM) displays marked intra-seasonal influence which appears to be highly location dependent. Consistent with the literature, rainfall shows increasing correlations with ENSO and IOD through Winter before peaking in Spring at all stations. Interestingly, despite changes in teleconnection strength over time, these tropical climate drivers display a stronger relationship with pan evaporation than rainfall over the full analysis period. Therefore an opportunity may exist to use such relationships to develop seasonal forecasts of evaporation, similar to what is currently employed for seasonal rainfall forecasting. This is important as Effective Precipitation is significantly influenced by the evaporative component of the TWB. Critically, this study shows that variations in such elements need to be considered on a regional basis, bearing in mind differences in geographic and topographic location, as well as intra-seasonal regimes within the overall Growing Season.]]> Wed 08 Nov 2017 07:12:41 AEDT ]]> Action research and occupational health and safety: an exploratory study http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:10366 Wed 08 Nov 2017 07:10:13 AEDT ]]> Relic of memories : An examination of nostalgia and longing in an old victorian manse http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:10253 Wed 08 Nov 2017 06:39:31 AEDT ]]> Never give up... : Perceptions of perseverance and its impact on the life and academic success of nine university students http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:12696 Wed 05 Dec 2018 16:37:09 AEDT ]]> The life and times of Dr Hermann Beckler (1828-1914) : An Australian - Barvarian Odyssey http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:11061 Wed 05 Dec 2018 14:45:11 AEDT ]]> Site, substance and sensation http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:10792 Wed 04 Jul 2018 16:38:03 AEST ]]> The effect of an eight week jump training program performed on indoor and sand surfaces on verticle jump performance in elite volleyball players http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:10134 Wed 04 Jul 2018 16:34:15 AEST ]]> A hand made wood object : Studio investigation into transformed nature http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:11935 Wed 04 Jul 2018 16:31:50 AEST ]]> Visualising the land: Ways of seeing surface and depth http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:10610 Wed 04 Jul 2018 16:26:07 AEST ]]> The lost opportunity of Melbourne's outer circle railway http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:13064 Wed 04 Jul 2018 15:57:24 AEST ]]> Meeting point : The physical and emotional environment http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:10445 Wed 04 Jul 2018 15:32:05 AEST ]]> Walking the trade route to a dead end?
