Thus the continental scale of the 1982/83 drought is typical of many years, although it was more severe than most. Extended periods of drought or extensive rains in Australia do not occur randomly in time, in relation to the annual cycle. The ENSO phenomenon, and Australian rainfall fluctuations associated with it, are phaselocked with the annual cycle. Thus the heavy rainfall of an anti-ENSO event tends to start early in the calendar year and finish early in the following year. The dry periods associated with ENSO events tend to occupy a similar time period.
