The data that are available to users are climate projections as daily time-series in a format suitable for most biophysical models. The projections data are centred on 2030 and 2050, and are available for approximately 4,700 climate stations, or for points on a 0.05 degree (approximately 5km) grid across Australia.
Six climate elements (rainfall, evaporation, minimum and maximum temperature, solar radiation and vapour pressure deficit) are supplied in either P51 or APSIM format.
The data are available for:
- two perturbation methods (change factor and quantile matching);
- eight climate scenarios (SRES Marker Scenario A1FI, SRES Marker Scenario A2, SRES Marker Scenario A1B, SRES Marker Scenario B2, SRES Marker Scenario A1T, SRES Marker Scenario B1, 550ppm stabilisation by 2150, 450ppm stabilisation by 2100);
- three global sensitivities (high, medium and low); and
- 19 global climate models.
Data are normally delivered via ftp. A sample of the data (ZIP, 1.3M, last updated 03:00PM, 14 May 2012) is available.
