Accessing NSW climate change data

NSW and ACT Regional Climate Model (NARCliM) data

Climate change projection data developed by NARCliM are available through the Climate Data Portal. Registered users of the Portal are able to select different datasets and data for particular locations and date ranges.

Interactive data mapping tool

Maps of future changes in the NSW climate and the impacts of these changes on the State are available for download here. The maps are in ASCII file format and based on the 2014 NARCliM projections.

This data is available for the multi-model mean of the 12-model ensemble for the NARCliM 10-kilometre domain. For temperature, hot days and cold nights, rainfall and Forest Fire Danger Index go to the NSW Climate Change Downloads page. For impact research, please visit the individual climate change impact research pages.

ANUCLIM datasets

Some of the NARCliM data are available at both 1-kilometre and 250-metre resolution. Variables available at this resolution are monthly averages of: maximum temperature, minimum temperature, precipitation, radiation and evaporation. A set of monthly bioclimatic parameters is also available at this spatial resolution. More information on this high-resolution data and the bioclimatic parameters is contained in the ANUCLIM Technical Report
