Key data and information The assessment presents the 2009–10 annual landscape water flows and the change in accessible surface water storage in the Murray–Darling Basin region. The year was wetter than average for the Murray–Darling Basin region (see Table 7-1) and resulted in above average landscape water yield.  Evapotranspiration levels were close to the average level, which allowed soil moisture storage to increase across much of the region. Surface water storage volumes also rose substantially (by 12.4 per cent of accessible storage capacity) during the year providing much needed water for both agricultural and environmental purposes.&rft.creator=Anonymous&rft.date=2013&rft.relation=http://www.bom.gov.au/water/awra/2010/documents/summary.pdf&rft.relation=http://www.bom.gov.au/water/awra/2010/mdb.shtml&rft.coverage=Murray-Darling Basin&rft.coverage=150.1350,-26.3200 148.2724,-26.0699 148.3824,-25.2749 147.8251,-24.7350 147.0001,-25.0374 146.8599,-24.5850 146.5050,-25.0000 145.7925,-24.9599 145.1500,-25.6851 144.5599,-27.5625 143.9875,-28.0426 144.0274,-29.3274 143.1950,-30.7500 142.6400,-30.8149 142.3851,-31.2625 141.5800,-31.4925 140.9726,-32.2825 140.3249,-32.1325 139.4925,-32.3649 138.8650,-33.0299 139.1701,-34.4824 138.5874,-35.2825 138.6649,-35.5374 139.2701,-35.7974 139.8551,-36.5149 139.5675,-35.5625 140.8551,-35.3775 140.8551,-35.7424 141.5501,-36.4950 141.7574,-37.1301 142.8575,-37.3675 142.9701,-37.1649 143.9051,-37.5050 144.7774,-37.2099 145.7401,-37.6800 146.4625,-37.6201 146.4500,-37.2900 147.1250,-36.9750 147.5300,-37.3200 148.1974,-36.8025 148.4999,-35.7775 149.4574,-36.5300 149.6025,-34.8501 149.4050,-34.6300 149.9651,-34.1799 149.8300,-33.9176 150.1100,-33.2426 149.9324,-32.9726 150.3625,-32.8449 149.6701,-32.2500 150.0675,-31.7799 150.7149,-31.8400 151.6576,-31.3326 151.3976,-30.8375 152.0675,-29.4999 151.9549,-28.5175 152.4900,-28.2499 151.9925,-27.7624 152.0675,-27.3325 151.0501,-26.1774 150.2325,-26.1275 150.1350,-26.3200&rft_rights=All material provided by the Bureau of Meteorology is covered by Copyright notice.&rft_rights=Unless otherwise noted in the list of licensing agreements (see Licensing folder), all material is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution Australia License&rft_subject=Australian hydrological geospatial fabric&rft_subject=Australian water resources assessment&rft_subject=environmental intelligence&rft_subject=groundwater&rft_subject=landscape modelling&rft_subject=water balance&rft_subject=Landscape water yield&rft_subject=Agricultural Hydrology (Drainage, Flooding, Irrigation, Quality, etc.)&rft_subject=AGRICULTURAL AND VETERINARY SCIENCES&rft_subject=OTHER AGRICULTURAL AND VETERINARY SCIENCES&rft_subject=Surfacewater Hydrology&rft_subject=EARTH SCIENCES&rft_subject=PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY AND ENVIRONMENTAL GEOSCIENCE&rft_subject=Hydrogeology&rft.type=dataset&rft.language=English Access the data
