We’ve improved confidence in projections, particularly rainfall projections; run targeted workshops, presentations and training to better identify user needs and help stakeholders access climate change information; and produced more targeted projection products for stakeholders to use in decision-making.
Changes in coastal climate
We’re improving our understanding of past sea level, storm surges and waves to develop projections for the future, so we can determine the physical impact these changes might have.
We’ve established the National Centre for Coasts and Climate to work with stakeholders to identify the best ways of addressing climate change impacts in Australian coastal ecosystems. We have investigated how coastal vegetated habitats store carbon, how coastal erosion is changing, and have trialled ecological engineering solutions to enhance coastal protection.
