() (°C) (°C) (mm) (mm) (MJ/m²) (hPa)


Monthly data are provided as follows:

  • Maximum temperature, minimum temperature, solar radiation and vapour pressure are the means for the given month; and
  • Rainfall and evaporation are the totals for the given month.

No daily data are provided.

" * Data Drill for Lat, Long: -20.00 140.00 (DECIMAL DEGREES), 20 00'S 140 00'E"
" * Elevation:  169m "
" * Extracted from SILO_v2.0 on 20170914"
" * Please read the documentation on the Data Drill at http://www.longpaddock.qld.gov.au/silo"
" "
" * The accuracy of the data depends on many factors including date, location, and variable."
"   For consistency data is supplied using one decimal place, however it is not accurate to that precision."
" "
" * Evaporation data prior to 1970 and Temperatures, Solar Radiation, and "
"   Vapour Pressure data prior to 1957 are all long term averages."
