Gauge Blended and Calibrated Radar Rainfall Data

Improving flood modelling is highly reliant on obtaining the best description of rainfall possible. As a solo researchers it becomes extremely prohibitive to undertake research in improving flood modelling when the data sources need to be paid for. Since this data is collected and processed from Government (Community) money, this data should be freely available to allow research and better flood modelling methods to be ...more »

ARR IFD Intensity Frequency Duration Grid

Recently the Australian Government funded the update of design rainfall intensities across Australia. However access to the data has been limited to a web site portal with the ability to download point data only. In order to undertaken more accurate flood modelling the grid of IFD over a catchment is required. There is no method to access the grid through the current approach. Why cant the entire grid data set not be ...more »
