Abstract

This document reports on the provision of Geographic Information System (GIS) services to the NCCARF project – “Adapting to Climate Change: A Risk Assessment and Decision Making Framework for Managing Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems with Declining Water Levels”. There were two specific objectives: 

    • Incorporation of hydrological data on to GIS platform 
    • Incorporation of risk assessment framework on to GIS platform 

Ultimately the work covered 6 main areas: 

    • Identifying and sourcing data from custodians in WA. 
    • Creation of new datasets from data provided. 
    • Incorporation of hydrological data on to GIS platform, and producing maps of exposure and vulnerability of GDEs in the study area. 
    • Integrating GIS data with Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) Models. 
    • Investigating ways of integrating environmental values with risk
