Brief descriptionThe Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology receives water data measured at stations around Australia from organisations named in the Water Regulations (2008).
Time series data collected from approximately 6,000 measurement stations across Australia is currently available. The parameters available are:
Watercourse level (subcategory 1a)
Watercourse discharge (subcategory 1b)
Storage level (subcategory 3a)
Storage volume (subcategory 3b)
Electrical conductivity of surface water (subcategory 9a)
Turbidity of surface water (subcategory 9d)
pH of surface water (subcategory 9g)
Temperature of surface water (subcategory 9h)
We will continue to expand the number of water information subcategories and water monitoring stations presented over time.
This data is stored in the Australian Water Resource Information System (AWRIS). AWRIS includes an ingest system, database and time series management software and is hosted by the Bureau of Meteorology.
This data is made available via the Water Data Online website - http://www.bom.gov.au/waterdata
You can also use Web Services to access the water data. A Sensor Observations Service standard version 2 (SOS2) has been implemented; the service returns data in WaterML2 format. Detailed information on how to use the service is available in the Guide to Sensor Observation Services (SOS2) for Water Data Online v1.0.1.pdf. The guide is available from the FAQ tab at http://www.bom.gov.au/waterdata
