eMAST has developed Australia's first gridded 1km climate dataset, a suite of bioclimatic summary indices and open source tools to generate them. Supplementing these data, eMAST is developing modelled estimates of Australia's carbon and water cycles covering the period 1970 to present. As part of our TERN wide synthesis strategy, we have developed Australia's first Ecosystem Model Parameters (EMP) database.
