The international report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the US found temperatures in the Territory dropped 2.95C below average. Climatologist Joel Lisonbee said a heavy Wet had provoked the chill. He said a surge of high pressure systems over the Australian Bight in May and June had pushed cold air north over the Territory. The La Nina pattern is long dead and buried, he said. But for May and most of June, most of the Territory was still quite wet. The cooler temperatures were due to the water cooling down and then coming out of the ground. The report showed the Territory experienced its eighthcoolest maximum temperatures since record-keeping in 1950. Average maximum temperatures dropped to 1.5C below average. Mr Lisonbee said the Territory was not going to see an early build-up, despite the warmer temperatures, low clouds, and high humidity. Were looking at near average temperatures for the rest of the Dry, through to the start of the Wet, he said. It is looking like pretty neutral conditions for this coming Wet season. Predictions for the next three months indicate temperatures would return to normal. Mr Lisonbee warned temperatures and humidity would rise by the end of August. Uni student in water aid study A DARWIN university student is trying to solve farm water supply problems in Indonesia. Charles Darwin University postgraduate Sarah Hobgen has a scholarship from the Australian Nuclear Science and Engineering Institute to continue her four-year project. Her work builds on experience from the extensive research in the Daly River catchment. Ms Hobgen said maintenance of water supplies was an increasing challenge with sedimentation of reservoirs and population growth. The finished project will make recommendations for the location of erosion control features to stop the Kambaniru Weir on Sumba Island filling with sediment and reducing irrigation water to 1440ha of rice fields.
