Formatted abstract
A critical aspect of the water balance in Australian palaeoclimatic studies is evaporation. During the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), lower temperatures have been assumed to facilitate lower evaporation, which in turn is used to explain anonymously ‘wet’ hydrological conditions within many fluvial and lacustrine records from this time. Here, the evidence for this relationship
is briefly reviewed, and examples from modern climates are given to argue for a revision of the role of evaporation in LGM hydrological balances throughout Australia.
