This collection provides additional analyses, figures and tables for an integrated risk assessment of natural, cultural and economic assets in the Kakadu Region of northern Australia, from the combine... mored threats of invasive species (feral animals & aquatic weeds) and climate change induced sea level rise saltwater inundation. It addresses cumulative multiple risks to multiple values over different time frames (Present-day, 2070 & 2100).less

1157.1 NRM Murray Basin - Water activity - Published 02 May 2016
Using the Land-Use Trade-Offs (LUTO) model, this data collection was produced via a comprehensive, detailed, integrated, and quantitative scenario analysis of land-use and sustainability for Australia... more’s intensive-use agricultural land to 2050, under intersecting global change and domestic policies, and considering key uncertainties. We assessed land use competition between multiple land uses and assessed sustainability of economic returns and multiple ecosystem services at high spatial (1.1 km grid cell) and temporal (annual) resolution.
Results available are for 648 scenarios covering combinations of four global outlooks, three general circulation climate models, three domestic land-use policies, three productivity growth rates, three land-use change adoption hurdle rates, and two capacity constraint settings.
Outputs included for each scenario are:
- annual land-use layers
- summary data table
- graphical dashboard summary
- animation of potential land-use change, drivers, and impacts
This analysis was conducted in conjunction with CSIRO’s Australian National Outlook initiative to assess future potential land-use change and the impacts for the sustainability of ecosystem services. A full description of the methods and synthesis of the results can be found in the papers listed in the Related Information below and freely available via email from the author.
The data is provided to support a national conversation on the future for Australian land systems, public decision-making and policy design, and further scientific research.
SIP 59 LUTO land use modelling science p - Modelling - Published 07 Jun 2016
Three empirically-derived indices of tropical cyclone genesis - Genesis Potential Index (labelled in files as "gpi"), Murakami-GPI ("GPIM") and Tippett Index ("TCGI") - have been applied to monthly ou... moretputs of a suite of CMIP5 models.
The indices each use combinations of monthly mean meteorological and sea surface temperature fields in order to indicate regions with favourable conditions for the generation of tropical cyclones (known as cyclogenesis).
The resulting outputs have been calculated over three time periods. Data are in the form of netCDF files containing time series of either seasonal or annual averages for each index. The files are arranged inside folders named after the CMIP5 model from which these products have been derived (note: these are not the official CMIP5 model names).
Index outputs are stored over each of the following periods:
- 1980 to 1999 (historical),
- 2046 to 2065 (rcp85), and
- 2081 to 2100 (rcp85)
where the bracketed text indicates the CMIP5 Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) used to provide the climate forcings for the simulation.
The seasonal time series files are labelled with the above year ranges, with a file name structure of:
The files containing annual average time series have file names of the form:
The [year] label in the annual average file names corresponds to the first year of one of the respective periods above, respectively:

CLSD PCCSAP TC Downscaling & Coincident - CMIP 5 model analysis of tropical cyclone behaviour - Published 02 Jul 2015
This data collection consists of:
1. ASCII text files listing each tropical cyclone detected within output of a suite of CMIP5 models for the Pacific region contained by latitudes 20N to 40S, and long... moreitudes 135E to 150W; and
2. Global images of tropical cyclone densities derived from these detections, presented as either days per year or storms per year for a 5 x 5 degree longitude/latitude grid.
All tropical cyclones detected using the CSIRO Direct Detection and tracking algorithm within the above domain are presented in space-delimited ASCII text files for each model. Three time periods are available to select:
- from 1981 to 2000 ("baseline" period used for projections);
- from 2081 to 2100 ("future" period used for projections); and
- from 1950 to 2100 (all data).
There are two image types for each coupled model data source, both based on densities of storms within a 5 x 5 lon/lat degree box for the respective 20 year period (either 1981-2000 or 2081-2100):
- images containing "days" in the file name show the number of days per year in which a tropical cyclone was detected within that box
- images with "number" in the file name display the number of separate storms per year detected within that box.less

1212.1 Goyder Climate - Task 3 - Statistically downscaled simulations - Published 14 Apr 2015
This is the high resolution version of the AdaptNRM Guide “Implications of Climate Change for Biodiversity: a community-level modelling approach” accompanies the digital datasets and maps. This versio... moren is the same as the web-version (lower resolution) available online at www.AdaptNRM.org.
This AdaptNRM Module introduces a series of new measures based on ecological similarity to assess the potential for change in biodiversity under climate change at scales relevant to planning. It is intended to support assessment and lead into strategic planning in NRM. In addition to this Guide, the Module includes a series of maps in poster format and data layers. Links to the datasets and maps are given in “related materials”, below.
This Guide explains how to interpret and use this information, rather than focusing on outcomes for any specific biological group, a likely future climate, or on how global human behaviour may be expressed though a particular emission scenario.
In this Guide, we:
1. introduce a new approach to modelling/mapping change in biodiversity under climate change developed by CSIRO,
2. demonstrate the types of data, show how these can be viewed at national, regional and local scales, and explain their interpretation,
3. provide examples of how this information can be used in planning, with a particular focus on assessment and the core adaptation challenges outlined in The NRM Adaptation Checklist.
