Table 3 Climate change scenarios for the study site in 2070 for minimum (ΔTmin, °C) and maximum (ΔTmax °C) air temperature, relative humidity (ΔRH, %), wind speed (% Wind), solar radiation (% Solar), annual rainfall (% ARain) and summer rainfall (% SRain)

From: An estimate of the water budget for the endangered night parrot of Australia under recent and future climates
