A bivariate test for detecting inhomogeneities in pan evaporation time series

  title={A bivariate test for detecting inhomogeneities in pan evaporation time series},
  author={Dewi Galuh Condro Kirono and Roger Jones},
Homogeneous climatological time series are necessary for studying historical climate variability and change. This paper describes the use of the bivariate test for detecting and adjusting discontinuities in Class A pan evaporation time series for 28 stations across Australia, and illustrates the benefit of using corrected records in climate studies. Ninety-two per cent of the inhomogeneities detected by the bivariate test are consistent with station metadata. Even though the test was designed…

Homogeneity analysis of Turkish meteorological data set

The missing value interpolation and homogeneity analysis were performed on the meteorological data of Turkey. The data set has the observations of six variables: the maximum air temperature, the

Tools to Estimate Groundwater Levels in the Presence of Changes of Precipitation and Pumping

Central Wisconsin has the greatest density of high capacity wells in the state, most of which are used for agricultural irrigation. Irrigated agriculture has been growing steadily in the region since

Revisiting Pan Evaporation Trends in Australia a Decade on

Decreases in pan evaporation (Epan) have been reported around the world despite increasing air temperatures; this was attributed to reductions in wind speed and solar radiation. Using 42 years

A Comparison of Australian Open Water Body Evaporation Trends for Current and Future Climates Estimated from Class A Evaporation Pans and General Circulation Models

Abstract Trends of decreasing pan evaporation around the world have renewed interest in evaporation and its behavior in a warming world. Observed pan evaporation around Australia has been modeled to

Understanding the Nature of Abrupt Decadal Shifts in a Changing Climate

Planning for future climate risk tends to incorporate assumptions of smoothly accelerating climate change, around which unchanged variability constitutes the risk boundaries. This constitutes

Evaporation modeling with multiple linear regression techniques– a review

Evaporation is influenced by number of agro-meteorological parameters and one of the integral components of the hydrological cycle and. Usually, estimates of evaporation are needed in a wide array of

Valuing adaptation under rapid change

Abstract The methods used to plan adaptation to climate change have been heavily influenced by scientific narratives of gradual change and economic narratives of marginal adjustments to that change.

Soil water regime largely determines the state of various ecosystems. Lack of moisture inevitably leads to their degradation. At the same time, excess of moisture can also have adverse effects on



Detecting inhomogeneities in pan evaporation time series

There is increasingly growing demand for evaporation data for studies of surface water and energy fluxes, especially for studies which address the impacts of global warming. To serve this purpose, a

An Approach to Adjusting Climatological Time Series for Discontinuous Inhomogeneities

Abstract A method is described whereby climatological time series of temperature and precipitation can be adjusted for station inhomogeneities using station history information. The adjusted data

Homogeneity adjustments of in situ atmospheric climate data: a review

Long-term in situ observations are widely used in a variety of climate analyses. Unfortunately, most decade- to century-scale time series of atmospheric data have been adversely impacted by

A homogeneity test applied to precipitation data

In climate research it is important to have access to reliable data which are free from artificial trends or changes. One way of checking the reliability of a climate series is to compare it with

A new method for detecting undocumented discontinuities in climatological time series

The development of homogeneous climatological time series is a crucial step in examining climate fluctuations and change. We review and test methods that have been proposed previously for detecting


Illustration of a New Test for Detecting a Shift in Mean in Precipitation Series

Abstract Maronna and Yohai (1978) have introduced a new test for detecting a shift in mean in an independent time series, based on a second correlated series. Unlike other procedures commonly applied

Secular trend of surface temperature at an elevated observatory in the Pyrenees

Abstract Surface temperature was measured at the Pic du Midi de Bigorre, 2862 m MSL, from the foundation of the Observatory in 1878 until the closing of the meteorological station in 1984. After

Pan Evaporation Trends in Dry and Humid Regions of the United States

Abstract Decreasing pan evaporation trends in many regions of the world have been viewed as evidence of a decrease in the terrestrial evaporation component of the hydrologic cycle. However, some
