Full description

A time-series of monthly average temperature maxima and minima maps from 1950 - Present. Data are mapped at 0.0025 degrees (~250 meters) spatial resolution and cover the entire extent of Queenslands Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. A large, independently collected set of weather data was used to spatially downscale AWAP daily weather layers of temperature maxima and minima to 0.0025 degree resolution as a function of key topographic and vegetation factors. These downscaled weather layers were then aggregated to form monthly average climate layers of temperature maxima and minima. For complete details of the statistical downscaling and aggregation procedure see the associated research publication at http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/ddi.12068
