Input climate data: daily time series of maximum temperature, minimum temperature, incoming solar radiation and precipitation from 1981 to 2012 at 0.05 x 0.05 degrees (~5 x 5 km) grid cells from the gridded data generated by the Bioregional Assessment Programme ().
Streamflow: daily streamflow data from 16 unregulated catchments collated by the Bioregional Assessment Programme () were used for model calibration (Figure 8). Out of the 16, four contribute to the Gloucester or Karuah river basins, including the Barrington River at Forbesdale (calibration gauge 208006), Gloucester River at Gloucester (208020), Mammy Johnsons River at Pikes Crossing (209002) and Karuah River at Dam site (209018). Of the remaining catchments, five are in the Manning river basin, six are in the Hunter river basin and one is in the Wallis Lake river basin.
Criteria for selecting the calibration catchments include that they:
