Murray-Darling Basin Sustainable Yields Project. Climate - Historical Climate Data Scenario (partial)


CSIRO, through the Water for a Healthy Country National Research Flagship, was contracted by the National Water Commission to assess the current and future water availability in 18 regions across the Murray-Darling Basin (MDB) considering climate change and other risks to water resources. Three climate scenarios were used for the hydrological mod... more

The data set published here is incomplete. Due to license conditions associated with the SILO dataset, we are unable to publish the SILO component of the data set. The APET and PPET are estimated from the climate data using Morton's ET algorithm. The relative humidity (actual vapour pressure divided by saturation vapour pressure) is a by-product of the above calculations. P-T-ET is estimated using Mike Raupach's computer program - this variable is not used in the project. The rainfall, minimum temperature, maximum temperature, incoming solar radiation and actual vapour pressure come from SILO Data Drill from the Queensland Department of Environment and Resource Management. The SILO Data Drill provides surfaces of daily rainfall and other climate data interpolated from point measurements made by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.

Process Step: The original .csv data was processed along with the cell index data to produce a set of netCDF files. The conversion programs were written by CSIRO Information Management & Technology staff, with the output reviewed and tested by a range of stakeholders. Each netCDF file is stamped with the version of the software used to do the conversion and the code is available from https://netcdftools.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/netcdftools/trunk
