    According to the sentences below what does "it" which is written in bold refer to?

    I think it refers to "Greater precipitation", but I am not sure. Thank you in advance.

    Greater precipitation might have increased flood frequency, the extent of flood and soil waterlogging, as precipitation in the river catchment was the main determinant of the alluvial systems dynamics.

    It might also have increased the reliability of rain-fed agriculture in the drier sub-environment of the plain while making agriculture in the alluvial zone more risky.

    Yes, you're right - "greater precipitation".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
