HUN AWRA-R simulation nodes v01


The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from multiple datasets. The source dataset 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.

The dataset consists of an excel spreadsheet and shapefile representing the locations of simulation nodes used in the AWRA-R model. Some of the nodes correspond to gauging station locations or dam locations whereas other locations represent river confluences or catchment outlets which have no gauging. These are marked as "Dummy".


Locations are used as pour points in oder to define reach areas for river system modelling.

Dataset History

Subset of data for the Hunter that was extracted from the Bureau of Meteorology's hydstra system and includes all gauges where data has been received from the lead water agency of each jurisdiction. Simulation nodes were added in locations in which the model will provide simulated streamflow.

There are 3 files that have been extracted from the Hydstra database to aid in identifying sites in each bioregion and the type of data collected from each on. These data were used to determine the simulation node locations where model outputs were generated.

The 3 files contained within the source dataset used for this determination are:

Site - lists all sites available in Hydstra from data providers. The data provider is listed in the #Station as _xxx. For example, sites in NSW are _77, QLD are _66.

Some sites do not have locational information and will not be able to be plotted.

Period - the period table lists all the variables that are recorded at each site and the period of record.

Variable - the variable table shows variable codes and names which can be linked to the period table.

Relevant location information and other data were extracted to construct the spreadsheet and shapefile within this dataset.
