Brochures and fact sheets
- Australia’s changing climate (Australian Climate Change Science Programme) – a useful starting point for anyone wanting to better understand how Australia’s climate has already changed, and how it will change into the future.
- Our changing climate: using climate change information to 2030 – explains climate change and climate variability and how to take both into account for short-term (10-20 year time horizon) decision-making.
- Our changing climate: How will rainfall change in Northern Australia over this century? – explains observations and projections for rainfall and other climate variables in the north.
- Our changing climate: Southern Australia rainfall – long-term trends and future projections – explains long term trends and projections of rainfall, including extreme rainfall, in southern Australia.
Science impact stories
- Sea-level rise information for councils – our researchers have prepared comprehensive sea-level projections for all coastal councils in Australia, making it easier for council planners and managers to know how sea-level rise will affect their council.
- Characterising extreme fire conditions – our researchers have produced a dataset of weather conditions influencing fire activity extending back to the 1950s, providing the big picture with regards to fire weather in our changing climate.
- Making coastal hazards information accessible – the Hub has re-developed a much used but old sea-level research website into a new portal that brings together information on an expanded range of coastal hazards including sea-level change, waves, coastal extremes and ocean energy.
- Connecting young scientists and data users – the Hub has established a Young Professionals Network to support both early career climate science researchers and sector-based young professionals to develop technical capacity to deliver and apply climate change science.
- Climate change information for local government – the Hub carried out a small case study to guide the development and delivery of climate change information for councils.
- Understanding climate change impacts on water resource management in Western Australia – the Hub continues to engage with the WA Department of Water and Environmental Regulation to determine their climate change science needs.
- Improving coastal inundation models for adaptation planning – the Hub worked with the City of Greater Geelong and Data61 to determine how our work on coastal extremes could feed into a coastal adaptation planning tool.
