This research was conducted with the support of the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning Program funded by AusAID in collaboration with the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, and delivered by the Bureau of Meteorology and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). We thank the PCMDI and the World Climate Research Program's Working Group on Coupled Modelling for their roles in making available the CMIP3 and CMIP5 multimodel datasets. Support of this dataset is provided by the Office of Science, U.S. Department of Energy. More details on model documentation are available at the PCMDI website (http://www-pcmdi.llnl.gov/). The authors also thank the data processing team at CSIRO for the CMIP5 and observed data access. We also thank Jaci Brown and Robert Colman for comments and suggestions on the development of the paper.
