project_abstract We utilized the gridded meteorological datasets for Australia from the Australian Water Availability Project (AWAP), a partnership of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Bureau of Rural Sciences, and CSIRO (http://www.bom.gov.au/jsp/awap/). These data are estimated for each pixel of a grid with a resolution of 0.05 x 0.05 decimal degrees (approximately five x five kilometres) using a spatial model. We used an open source R package to download and format the AWAP grids (https://github.com/swish-climate-impact-assessment/awaptools).
