Abstract

HOBART scientists have used a 1000-year Antarctic ice core record to answer a burning question regarding Australia’s worst drought since European settlement. The Millennium Drought, which crippled Australian farms and left water supplies dangerously low in the early 2000s, had previously been described as an exceptional freak of nature.
