9s climatology for continental Australia 2036-2065:MIROC 5 rcp 4.5 : Summary variables with elevation and radiative adjustment


A suite of 9s resolution climate surfaces for the Australian continent, with adjustment for the radiative effects of terrain. This collection represents a 30 year average centred on 2050 for the MIROC 5 circulation model under RCP 4.5. Projected future climates were generated by applying within-model changes (e.g. MIROC 5 2036-2065 MIROC 5 (1976-20... more

Climate surfaces for the present were based on the ANUCLIM 6.1 (Xu and Hutchinson, 2011) 30 year average climate surfaces for Australia (1976-2005), with elevational lapse rate correction applied over the 9s GEODATA digital elevation model (Hutchinson et al , 2008). Radiative correction derived from the same DEM was applied to radiation and maximum temperature before calculation of evaporation, using the CSIRO TerraFormer software. Summary statistics for each variable were then calculated including variables described in Williams et al (2012). A short methods summary is provided in the file 9sClimateMethodsSummary.pdf for further information.
