Dryness is defined by ratio of accumulated annual rainfall and potential evapotranspiration (PET). Understanding changes in dryness will help stakeholders and policy makers making long-term plans in water management and mitigation/adaptation. In this study, the 50-km resolution climate simulations from the NARCliM outer domain will be used to assess the future changes in dryness.

New research shows regional climate models consistently provide added value across Australia compared to global climate models. As a result, researchers and policymakers can obtain plausible improvements in future climate projections from the current generation of available RCMs.
