A) Data processing: Daily reference evapotranspiration calculated following Allen (1998; FAO-56). Daily saturation vapour pressure calculated using the August-Roche-Magnus equation (Alduchov & Eskridge 1996). B) Input datasets: 1) Gridded daily solar radiation data produced using hourly satellite images as part of the AWAP project were obtained from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (http://www.bom.gov.au/). Imagery from the Geostationary Meteorological Satellite series operated by Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) and from GOES-9 operated by the National Oceanographic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for the JMA is used by the BoM to process each daily scene. Analysis of the data series between January 1990 and July 2014 indicated that 4.8% of the scenes were not available (due to data quality issues, technical interruptions, etc.). In order to ensure a continuous data series, gaps for any given day were filled by taking the long-term average across all scenes within 5 days of the target date. 2) Near-surface wind speed (McVicar 2011; https://doi.org/10.25919/5c5106acbcb02) 3) Minimum temperature (Stewart & Nitschke 2018; https://doi.org/10.25919/5c183912b47c7) 4) Maximum temperature (Stewart & Nitschke 2018; https://doi.org/10.25919/5c182fd156dd9) 5) Vapour pressure (Stewart et al. 2020; https://doi.org/10.25919/5e3be4e3511bf)
