Climate Futures for Tasmania

The Climate Futures for Tasmania project is the Tasmanian Government's most important source of climate change projections at a local scale. The project, managed by the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre, is an essential part of Tasmania's climate change strategy. It provides the first fine-scale climate information for Tasmania by downscaling six global climate models with two emission scenarios (high emissions scenario - A2 and lower emissions scenario - B1) to generate climate information from 1961 to 2100.
