MDB: Murrumbidgee Surface Meteorology and Radiation Data Set


This data set contains the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observation Project (CEOP) Enhanced Observing Period 3 and Enhanced Observing Period 4 (EOP-3 and EOP-4) Murray-Darling Basin (MDB) Murrumbidgee 30 Minute Surface Meteorology and Radiation Data Set. This data set contains 30 minute data from the 10 stations in the Murrumbidgee river basin for the CEOP EOP-3 and EOP-4 time period. This data set contains the entire EOP-3 and EOP-4 time period (1 October 2002 through 31 December 2004) and the updated data 1 January 2005 through 30 November 2007 data. Prior to December 2006 the Cootmundra stations wind data came from hand held instrumentation at 2m height. Startin in December 2006 the wind data come from a 10 m wind sensor on a Young AWS located about 35 km away.

This data set contains both ASCII data and netCDF data. The ASCII data file covers the entire time period for all stations. The netCDF data file covers the entire time period with one netCDF file for each station.
