Station details/Station height is in metres above mean sea level.

Years of data are the number of complete years of data for the 1981 – 2010 period.

Master station list – most climate variables in the datasets are from these stations. Where AWS stations have replaced the original stations, the records have been combined. Because the complete years of data generally vary between variables, an average of the complete years of data was calculated.
