Gippsland mean annual rainfall


The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from the national SILO data sets of climate station records. The parent dataset(s) is identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement. The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.

Gippsland Product 2-1 Climate Data Geodatabase v01

This geodatabase contains the climate data used in the Gippsland Basin bioregion. The geodatabase includes the following datasets (average daily values): climate zones, evaporation, radiation, rainfall, evapotranspiration, maximum temperature and minimum temperature.


To spatially represent interpolated mean annual rainfall (mm/yr) for the period 1957-2012- in Gippsland

Dataset History

The data was extracted from the national SILO data sets for 199 climate stations in the Gippsland region (see Lineage). The data was produced using ANUClim software (Hutchinson, 2001), using the interpolation methods discussed in Jeffery et al., 2001.

For a given climate station daily climate data is a combination of original measurements and rectified data to remove any gaps in the record using interpolation methods discussed in Jeffery et al. (2001).

To account for sparsely located climate stations within Gippsland, mean daily rainfall were scaled to each solution point within the study area according to interpolated mean annual rainfall spatial layer created using the ANUClim software (Hutchinson 2001).
