0.01 degree stack of climate layers for continental analysis of biodiversity pattern, version 1.0


These data provide rasterised layers of climatic variables hypothesised to explain spatial patterns in biological diversity at continental scales for use with statistical modelling tools. Specifically, these data were derived for modelling the compositional pattern of multiple species with environmental factors such as climate, soil and topography... more

NOTE: Full details of the methods and data sources, as well as a bibliography, are provided in a PDF file included in the data collection. Monthly climatic layers were computed with the ESOCLIM module of ANUCLIM version 6.0 (beta) for each grid cell of a 0.01 degree resolution DEM derived by resampling the national 9 second DEM version 3 with the Arc/Info RESAMPLE function using bilinear interpolation. Annual growth indices were computed using the GROCLIM module of ANUCLIM, a derivative of GROWEST. These and other climatic variables are described below. The values of each layer were consistently expanded around the coastline using the focalmean function in Arc/INFO GRID with neighbourhood shape defined by a circle of radius two cells with DATA values. In each case, the original values of the grids were retained and values were extrapolated outwards from the coast, or to fill data voids where applicable. The data were expanded around the coast because of the coarseness of the 1km grid which results in removal of areas of coastline when viewed at finer scales. Data were masked to consistently define data/nodata values across all climatic and substrate/terrain layers (for the latter, see the Related Materials section). A coastline mask with resolution 0.01 degrees (OZMASK1K) was generated from the current extent of the Australian coastline and surrounding islands defined by the GEODATA Coast 1:100,000 topographic vector data series (Geoscience Australia 2004).This coastline incorporates some minor land and island locations that are not yet captured by the 9-second digital elevation model. It was created to mask model outputs to better reflect the GEODATA coastline, rather than the expanded coastline mask.

About this Project

Closed DEWHA Harness Cntnnt-wide Bdvrsty


The primary purpose of this Caring for Our Country project was to establish a foundation for making more effective use of the large quantity of species-location records now accumulated for the Australian continent, in a variety of biodiversity assessment and planning activities undertaken by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Pop... more

Spatial Environmental Data Preparation


Environmental data, along with biological data, are the building blocks of biodiversity analysis. They are essential to the process of modelling biodiversity patterns and mapping predicted distributions. A key objective of the environmental data is to explain as much as possible about the relationship between the biodiversity response (e.g. composi... more
