Analysis of rainfall and stream hydrology at Samford Valley

Viewed: 1910

This dataset lists rainfall and stream hydrograph analysis at Samford Valley in an Adobe PDF file. 

The Samford Valley has a subtropical climate, which is typical of South East Queensland.  Moist, unstable and subtropical maritime air flows in from the Pacific Ocean.  Surface air is warm and marked instability characterises the pressure field which leads to strong vertical motion of the lower layers of the atmosphere to induce condensation.  Heavy rainfall and thunderstorms result.  The data illustrates the mean monthly rainfall at Samford and highlights the dominance of summer rainfall.  Stream hydrographs from 1966-2005 were examined and annual baseflow indices were calculated.  These figures are included.
