A degree-day factor for snowmelt is calculated using a linear relationship between combined measured melt and the number of degree-days. The slope of the regression line for these data points provides an estimate of the degree-day factor for use in runoff models. Average snowmelt is 17.8 mm d−1, but varies between 0 and 78 mm d−1. Melt occurs in a series of distinct cyclical events or pulses, each of which lasts 5-8 days. These correspond to the eastward passage of anticyclones, then troughs over the Southern Alps. When all days with northwest airflow across the Southern Alps are excluded, the melt factor is 3.4 mm °C−1 d−1. Northwest days belong to a different population with a much higher average melt factor of 9.1 mm °C−1 d−1, but more measurements are required to better understand key processes.]]> Mon 30 May 2016 11:55:29 AEST ]]> Coniferous tree species mapping using Landsat data http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:16595 Mon 20 Aug 2018 14:40:34 AEST ]]> QuickBird and Hyperion data analysis of an invasive plant species in the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador: Implications for control and land use management http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:15208 Mon 20 Aug 2018 14:36:55 AEST ]]> Organic nitrogen in rain and aerosol at Cape Grim, Tasmania, Australia http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:4509 Fri 27 May 2016 15:43:40 AEST ]]> Earthquake-induced displacements of gravity retaining walls and anchor-reinforced slopes http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:15085 Fri 14 Jun 2019 13:46:44 AEST ]]> Caesium-137 in Southeast Asia: Is there enough left for soil erosion and sediment redistribution studies? http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:18309 Fri 08 Feb 2019 10:24:22 AEST ]]> Reconstructing annual inflows to the headwater catchments of the Murray River, Australia, using the Pacific Decadal Oscillation http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:6852 500 year PDO index of Shen et al. (2006) is highly correlated with inflows to the headwaters of Australia’s longest river system, the Murray‐Darling. We then use the PDO to reconstruct annual inflows to the Murray River back to A.D. 1474. These show penta‐decadal and quasi‐centennial cycles of low inflows and a possible 500 year cycle of much greater inflow variability. Superimposed on this is the likely influence of recent anthropogenic global warming. We believe this may explain the exceptionally low inflows of the past decade, the lowest of the previous 529 years.]]> Fri 08 Apr 2016 08:44:29 AEST ]]> Evidence of solar and tropical-ocean forcing of hydroclimate cycles in southeastern Australia for the past 6500 years http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:6695 Fri 08 Apr 2016 07:04:01 AEST ]]> Atmospheric pollutants in alpine peat bogs record a detailed chronology of industrial and agricultural development on the Australian continent http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:6694 Fri 07 Nov 2014 12:04:29 AEST ]]> Tertiary water striders (Hemiptera, Gerromorpha, Gerridae) from the central Tibetan Plateau and their palaeobiogeographic implications http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:24833 Fri 05 Apr 2019 11:55:45 AEST ]]>
