Notes:

Ranks are given from highest to lowest, and cover the period from 1900 to 2014 (115 years) for rainfall and sea surface temperatures, and 1910 to 2014 (105 years) for Australian land surface air temperatures. Anomalies are from a 1961–1990 base period. Ranks with = indicate a tie for that position.
2014 sea surface temperature values are for the 11 months from January to November.
