Climate Futures for Tasmania: General Climate Impacts Technical Report

This report presents the resuts from climate change modelling for Tasmania using six GCMs and based on a high (A2) and low (B1) IPCC emission scenario. The report also introduces the climate change drivers for the region.

Sea-Level Rise and Its Impact on Coastal Zones

Global sea levels have risen through the 20th century. These rises will almost certainly accelerate through the 21st century and beyond because of global warming, but their magnitude remains uncertain. Key uncertainties include the possible role of the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets and the amplitude of regional changes in sea level. In many areas, nonclimatic components of relative sea-level change (mainly subsidence) can also be locally appreciable.

Regional Climate Change Risk Assessment & Adaptation Planning Initiative: LGA Local Profiles

A collection of climate change projections for sub regions and towns involved in the Hunter, Central and Lower North Coast Region of NSW climate change study. The results are based on projections using statistical downscaling of the CSIRO Mk3.5 climate change model. Towns studied include Cessnock, Dungog, Gloucester, Gosford, Greater Taree, Great Lakes, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Muswellbrook, Newcastle, Port Stephens, Singleton, Upper Hunter, and Wyong.

Climate Change Impact for the Hunter, Lower North Coast and Central Coast Region of NSW

This study on the potential climate change risks for the Hunter, Central and Lower North Coast Region of NSW. It uses climate change data from the University of Newcastle, based on the CSIRO MK3.5 model which has been statistically downscaled. A process known as self organising mapping was used to identify the main climate drivers in the region. The results of the impact analysis is described using four case studies: the viticulture industry; human health concerns related to extreme heat events; bushfire weather; and, coastal impacts of extreme events.
