WORD OF THE DAY
The rainfall in the south-west portion of the island is considerably greater than in other districts.
per annum, but in the west and south, more remote than from 250 to 300 m., there is a rainfall of less than 20 in.
The annual rainfall and the area of the catchment afford no measure whatever as to the size of a river in the interior of Australia.
rainfall band circles across the continent through the middle of the Northern Territory, embraces the entire centre and south-west of Queensland, with the exception of the extreme south-western angle of the state, and includes the whole of the interior of New South Wales to a line about 200 m.
The temperature and rainfall are governed by conditions different from those in corresponding latitudes of the northern hemisphere..
per annum, and along a strip of country south from Cape Melville to Rockingham Bay the average rainfall exceeds 70 in.
