NSW Rainfall Data Collection Program

MHL collects rainfall data at over 300 continuously recording stations with additional sites installed for specific studies. The majority of data available online for the public has been collected under the NSW Coastal Data Network Program managed by Climate Change and Sustainability Division, NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (OEH). For more information on coasts, estuaries and floods visit : environment.nsw.gov.au.

The design, instrumentation, and installation techniques used to monitor rainfall in coastal NSW are site specific and mostly dependent on the surrounding topography, end use of the data, and length of monitoring period required.
