Climate Victoria: Maximum Temperature (3DS; 9 second, approx. 250 m)


Daily (Jan 1981 - Jul 2014), monthly and mean monthly (1981-2010) surfaces of maximum temperature (approx. 1.2 m from ground) across Victoria at a spatial resolution of 9 seconds (approx. 250 m). Surfaces are developed using ordinary trivariate splines (full spline dependence upon latitude, longitude and elevation).

A) Data modelling: 1. Weather station observations collected by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology were obtained via the SILO patched point dataset (https://data.qld.gov.au/dataset/silo-patched-point-datasets-for-queensland), followed by the removal of all interpolated records. 2. Climate normals representing the 1981-2010 reference period were calculated for each weather station. A regression patching procedure (Hopkinson et al. 2012) was used to correct for biases arising due to differences in record length where possible. 3. Climate normals for each month were interpolated with full spline dependence upon latitude, longitude and elevation (Fenner School of Environment and Society & Geoscience Australia 2008) using ANUSPLIN 4.4 (Hutchinson & Xu 2013). 4. Daily anomalies were calculated by subtracting daily observations from climate normals and interpolated with full spline dependence upon latitude and longitude 5. Interpolated anomalies were added to interpolated climate normals to obtain the final daily surfaces. 6. Monthly surfaces are calculated as an aggregation of the daily product. B) Spatial data inputs: 1. Fenner School of Environment and Society and Geoscience Australia. 2008. GEODATA 9 Second Digital Elevation Model (DEM-9S) Version 3. C) Model performance (3DS): Accuracy assessment was conducted with leave-one-out cross validation. Mean monthly maximum temperature RMSE = 0.51 °C Daily maximum temperature RMSE = 1.20 °C Please refer to the linked manuscript for further details.
