Sample data for APSIM (Station)

Data format is:

Year DayNumber Radn T.Max T.Min Rain Evap VP Source

where the source code is a 6 digit string comprising the source code for the 6 variables. The single digit code for each variable is:

  • 0, an actual observation;
  • 1, an actual observation from a composite station;
  • 2, a value interpolated from daily observations;
  • 3, a value interpolated from daily observations using the anomaly interpolation method for CLIMARC data;
  • 6, a synthetic pan value; or
  • 7, an interpolated long term average.s
Example
[weather.met.weather]
!station number = 040004
!station name =  AMBERLEY AMO
latitude = -27.6297  (DECIMAL DEGREES)
longitude =  152.7111  (DECIMAL DEGREES)
tav = 20.02 (oC) ! Annual average ambient temperature. Based on 1 Jan 1957 to current.
amp = 12.39 (oC) ! Annual amplitude in mean monthly temperature. Based on 1 Jan 1957 to current.
!Data extracted from SILO_v2.0 on 20170914" for APSIM
!As evaporation is read at 9am, it has been shifted to day before
!ie The evaporation measured on 20 April is in row for 19 April
!The 6 digit code indicates the source of the 6 data columns
!0 actual observation, 1 actual observation composite station
!2 interpolated from daily observations
!3 interpolated from daily observations using anomaly interpolation method for CLIMARC data
!6 synthetic pan
!7 interpolated long term averages
!more detailed two digit codes are available in SILO's 'Standard' format files
