  • This dataset contains Biome-BGC v4.2 model outputs of national pasture production forced with present day and 4 future projected CO2 Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP past, 2.6, 4.5, 6.0, and 8.5) taken from the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report. Meteorological inputs used to run the model were downscaled from six different General Circulation Models (GCMs): BCC-CSM1.1, CESM1-CAM5, GFDL-CM3, GISS-EL-R, HadGEM2-ES, and NorESM1-M. Outputs are provided for two different parameterizations of the Biome-BGC model to describe New Zealand’s two dominant types of pasture, dairy and sheep. The model was run at each point on NIWA’s Virtual Climate Station Network (VCSN), a 5 x 5 km national grid. The data consists of daily outputs at each grid box of net primary productivity (NPP), gross primary productivity, net ecosystem productivity (NEP), evapotranspiration (ET), water outflow, evaporation, transpiration, and soil water content, spanning 1971 – 2005 (RCP past) or 2006 – 2100 (RCP 2.6, 4.5, 6.0, and 8.5).

  • The National Environmental Data Centre (NEDC) online directory http://nedc.nz is a website resource that provides information on environmental datasets for Aotearoa New Zealand and in some places wider coverage. The datasets are each hosted by one of New Zealand's Crown Research Institutes; AgResearch, ESR, GNS Science, Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research, NIWA, Scion and Plant & Food Research. The datasets are categorised in terms of Atmosphere, Biodiversity, Climate, Freshwater, Geology, Land and Ocean themes.

  • This Feature Class contains paleofacies (i.e. paleoenvironmental) polygon features for sedimentary basins in the Northwest Province (Atlas of Petroleum Prospectivity), namely the Taranaki, Deepwater Taranaki, and Reinga-Northland basins. Features are depicted relative to the modern New Zealand coastline. No palinspastic reconstructions have been undertaken. Polygon features for 35 Ma (latest Eocene, NZ Runangan-Whaingaroan Stage Boundary) are contained in this Feature Class.
