Notes: Annual evaporation describes the amount of water evaporating from the land. It should not be confused with potential evaporation. Annual evaporation has been calculated by summing monthly data from WaterDyn model 18a 1955-2006 produced by the Australian Water Availability Project (AWAP). The mean has been calculated from these annual figures.
