What is SILO?

SILO (Scientific Information for Land Owners) is a database of Australian climate data from 1889 (current to yesterday). It provides daily datasets for a range of climate variables in ready-to-use formats suitable for research and climate applications. SILO products provide national coverage with interpolated infills for missing data, which allows you to focus on your research or model development without the burden of data preparation.

SILO is hosted by the Science Division of the Queensland Government's Department of Environment and Science (DES). The datasets are constructed from observational data obtained from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. SILO products are provided free of charge to the public for use under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license.
