AWAP - Australian Water Availability Project
This dataset is managed by BoM and many versions are circulated around. Here is the advice we have received from BoM (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) in regards to the best version available on raijin for climate scientists.
- Morwenna Griffiths is updating a version of AWAP on rr8, mainly for the seasonal people, but she's happy for others to use it while no official option is available. This version is updated every 6 months and not being an official datasets could be re-structued without notice.
- Eventually an organised link to this collection will be provided by Aurel Moise in the re-anlysis project rr7. Both daily/monthly hires/lowres versions of the data will be made available in rr7. this then should be the project from which to access the data.
- Once the Bureau has finished DOI-minting the current AWAP data, they will place it on the BOM project on NCI and then that will be the authoritative AWAP data source; from then on the rr7 sub-set will be updated from there.
- The AGCD (Australian Gridded Climate Data) will provide a new method and higher resolution. There's some confusion and data which is circulated as AGCD but it's not! Once the real AGCD comes online, there will be a period where both AWAP and AGCD will run parallel for comparison
