still scarce in some areas where long-term rainfall and streamflow reconstructions are needed. The Murray–Darling basin (MDB) in Australia is one such region where high-resolution paleoclimate proxies that capture continuous records of recent climate variability currently only exist on or beyond the basin’s margin. Paleoclimate proxies related to MDB hydroclimatic variability would enable improved estimations and understanding of hydroclimatic risk and variability, which is critical given the region

the evolution of a proxy variable. Arguably no such model currently exists, but forward models such as those of Evans et al. (2006) , Evans (2007) , and Baker et al. (2012) all succeed in integrating descriptions of multiple processes. At the other extreme, forward models can be simple, linear, and parameterized. An example is the pseudocoral approach, which seeks to describe the evolution of coral δ 18 O in terms of nonisotopic climate variables ( Brown et al. 2008 ; Thompson et al. 2011

Climate Stewardship (IBTrACS) ( Knapp et al. 2010 ). IBTrACS was not a reanalysis, but a collation of currently available best-track data from agencies worldwide. The major difference from SPEArTC, as documented in Diamond et al. (2012) , was that it employed a season-by-season and storm-by-storm quality control process of track morphologies in order to develop as high-quality a dataset as possible. In the process of constructing SPEArTC, a number of corrections were made, including the addition of
