An exhaustive search of documentation regarding observational practices, instrumentation, site relocations and exposure of instruments has been conducted for Australian rainfall stations. The aim has been to identify high quality long-term rainfall stations which could be used to monitor and assess climate changes. Statistical tests were also employed in the selection process to determine the reliability of observing practices and to check for inhomogeneities in the data. -from Authors
