Findings have been released as to why the Bureau of Meteorology weather stations at Goulburn and Thredbo failed to record accurately in the middle of winter.

 

The review conducted by a panel of three independent experts was commissioned to evaluate the integrity of the Automatic Weather Station system.

 

This followed equipment failures in Goulburn and Thredbo which caused the loss of temperature data below minus 10.4 degrees.

 

Bureau director, Dr Andrew Johnson says the findings support initial investigations that outages were the result of equipment not being fit for purpose.

 

There were outages on one day in Goulburn and on six days in Thredbo but Dr Johnson says they had no impact on the official temperature record for measuring long-term temperature change.
