Where data comes from 2001

SILO is an enhanced climate database hosted by the Queensland Department of Environment and Science (DES). Silo's unique feature is that it provides continuous records of daily variables, well suited to use in models and decision support tools.

In order to create continuous long-term records, a series of algorithms are applied to infill data gaps.

This paper describes those methods.
