Impact of Land-Use Changes on Rainfall in South Australia

It is general knowledge that rainfall is experiencing changes over time in South Australia. What is less well known is exactly by how much, whether there are regions where it is rising and others where it is falling. What is also not fully known is whether the changes can be wholly attributed to climate change or are land use changes a factor as well.

This project aims to extend works in previous research to understand the historical trend of rainfall for the various regions in South Australia and how land use and other drivers have an impact on these changes in rainfall. Understanding what the key factors are can make the state more resilient to changes in future.
