Abstract: We present in this paper the development of a new, open-source MATLAB toolbox SRS-GDA that aims to providerandom spatial sampling of grid-based hydro-climatic datasets for environmental change studies. This toolboxaddresses the needs of quantifying how hydro-climatic responses, which are often driven by grid-based forcingdatasets such as climate model projections, vary with location and scale. The toolbox can be used to carry outrandom spatial sampling of grid-based quantities with various constraints: shape, size, location, dominantorientation and resolution. A case study of a large dataset, the GEAR rainfall dataset is supplied to demonstratethe typical uses case of this toolbox. The provision of the toolbox for downloading together with the sample datais also presented.
