Gridded Meteorological Data


The gridded meteorological data are observations from ground-based instruments stationed across Australia of rainfall, air temperature and water vapour. The irregularly gridded observations are gridded onto a regular 0.05 degree grid covering Australia using a sophisticated analysis technique described in Jones et al. (2009). This method uses an optimised Barnes successive correction technique that applies a weighted averaging process to the station data. This gridpoint analysis technique provides an objective average for each grid square and enables useful estimates in data-sparse areas such as central Australia. Details of each dataset are available by clicking on the product names below.
