Brief description

This dataset contains information gathered from automatic weather stations (model: Environdata, Warwick, Queensland) collected at 13 sites in the Simpson Desert since 1995. These weather stations record measured rainfall via a tipping bucket every minute. Data pooled for each day.

The information included in this dataset are:

  • Site name
  • Monthly rainfall total
  • Daily rainfall
  • Site of the weather station
  • Date

The research data is stored with a Microsoft Access database and is approximately 50MB

This data was collected with the following Australian Research Council grant funding:

  • 1995 to 1997 - Impact of feral predation on populations of small vertebrates in arid Australia.
  • 1995 to 2000 - Determinants of local abundance and diversity of small mammals in arid Australia; the role of oases and regional processes.
  • 1996 to 1998 - Determinants of abundance and diversity of marsupials in Arid Australia; role of facilitation.
  • 1998 to 1999 - Diversity of lizards in arid Australia: a keystone role for termites.
  • 1999 to 2001 - Morphological and functional plasticity in Australian populations of the House mouse, Mus musculus domesticus.
  • 2000 - The impact of rainfall on seed abundance and diversity in arid Australia.
  • 2001 to 2003 - Population dynamics of Australian desert rodents; effects of competition for food with ants.
  • 2004 to 2006 - Boom and bust: the role of fire and rain in driving the dynamics of seeds and rodents in arid Australia http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP0451749.
  • 2004 to 2008 - Desert island biogeography: vertebrate dynamics after fire-induced fragmentation of habitat in central Australia http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP0452475.
  • 2006 to 2009 - Avoiding environmental bankruptcy: the grazing impacts of red kangaroos and sheep http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/LP0668879.
  • 2007 to 2009 - Biodiversity enhancement in Arid Australia: the importance of micro-refugia and biotic interactions http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP0773754.
  • 2009 to 2013 - The renaissance predator: complex predator-prey interactions and vertebrate diversity in arid Australia http://purl.org/au-research/grants/arc/DP0988535.
