Brief description

Output of downscaling NCEP reanalysis 2 using the Cubic Conformal Atmospheric Model (CCAM). The configuration of CCAM being used is a 64x64 cells per face, with the high resolution face centered over Australia. This model was forced from raw NCEP data using both sea surface tempearture and atmospheric forcing. This configuration provides an approximate resolution of 60km in the high resolution face.
The output is processed on to a pressure levels grid for a region covering the Australian continent, Tasman Sea and Southern Ocean.
Data is output 6 hourly and includes all CCAM variables among which: air temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, runoff, soil moisture, cloud coverage, radiation, evaporation and wind speed. The modelling output covers the time period 01/01/1961 up to 30/11/2006.
This model simulation was designed to allow downscaling to a high resolution (0.1 degree) version of CCAM centered over Tasmania.

Data time period: 31 12 1960 to 30 11 2006
