ANUCLIM Annual Mean Rainfall raster layer

The Annual Mean Rainfall dataset was created using ANUCLIM software and the 1 second SRTM DEM-S (smoothed Digital Elevation Model) data. Climate variables generated by ANUCLIM (Version 6.1 MTHCLIM module) depend on a digital elevation model.

Monthly mean climate values for the 1976-2005 periods are used to generate the surface. Grid resolution is 1 second or approximately 30m.
