Freshwater models require monitoring data or the output from other models for input and calibration. Methods to obtain suitable data therefore forms a part of an interoperable modelling project. This page summarises what data is available for freshwater models, standards for exchanging data, and initiatives to make data more organised, discoverable, and available.
A good place to start to learn what data is available is the Statistics New Zealand Stocktake for the Environmental Domain Plan (PDF). This document lists all relevant data on the environment related to ten topics: Climate Change, Atmosphere, Freshwater, Marine, Land, Materials and Waste, Energy, Mineral Resources, Ecosystems and Biodiversity, and Environmental Protection Effort.
