Water Data Online (blue) and the Australian Climate Observations Reference Network – Surface Air Temperature (brown) sites shown on NEII data viewer
The recently released National Environmental Monitoring Sites Register brings together a diverse range of Australian environmental monitoring networks in one database and on an interactive map.
It currently includes rainfall radars, long-term weather observation sites, seismic monitoring stations, flux stations, ground cover reference sites, shelf moorings, and other networks.

Schematic showing elements in the AWRA landscape modelling system
The model behind our Australian Landscape Water Balance is now available to the hydrological community.
The Bureau's Australian Water Resources Assessment (AWRA) landscape modelling system provides estimates of water fluxes and stores in the Australian landscape including daily 5 km by 5 km gridded soil moisture, runoff, evapotranspiration and deep drainage values, back to 1911.

The Australian Groundwater Insight has been updated with 2014–15 data and new features, making it easier to find for government, policy developers and the general public to access and understand groundwater information.
Read more about Greater insight into our groundwater resources.
It's now easier to see how water might flow through the landscape without needing specialised software. Visualising connections between water sources and other environmental features has been made simpler, with improved web services integrating National Environmental Information Infrastructure data services with the Australian Hydrological Geospatial Fabric (Geofabric).
