  • 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… CONTINUE READING
