Transcript of "Berry Climate Change Projections And Implication"

  1. 1. Climate Change Projections and Implication The River, the Bay and the Strait Forum
  2. 2. Up Front <ul><li>This presentation is not about the science of climate change. </li></ul><ul><li>Assuming that the climate is already changing and it will continue to do so even with mitigation. </li></ul><ul><li>Projection not fact. Still requires development of peer review process and adoption into policy. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Problems <ul><li>Differing projections depending on model used. </li></ul><ul><li>State Government guaranteeing flow rates and yield based on CSIRO projections. </li></ul><ul><li>78% of catchment area does not correspond to 78% of flow. </li></ul><ul><li>Removing 22% of a catchment area will have an impact, especially in addition to reduced rainfall. </li></ul>

  5. 5. Climate Modelling <ul><li>Where computer programs make projections about future climate using: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. Global circulation models (GCMs), </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Emission scenarios, and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3. Climatic sensitivity. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Global Circulation Models (GCMs) <ul><li>Physically based, complex, 3D models. </li></ul><ul><li>Take into account as many factors as possible that could influence climate and hence simulate the global climate system. </li></ul><ul><li>Climate factors include: wind patterns and ocean currents, cyclones, El Nino, ice-sheets, clouds, ecosystems etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Source: CLIMsystems </li></ul>

  17. 17. Conclusions <ul><li>Impossible to guarantee water above or below dam. </li></ul><ul><li>Different software packages, models and scenarios can give different projections. </li></ul><ul><li>Higher temperatures mean higher levels of evaporation and evapotranspiration. </li></ul><ul><li>Longer growing seasons for aquatic weeds. </li></ul><ul><li>Higher demand for water. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Future Research <ul><li>Increase accuracy of rainfall projections to local areas i.e. models & data used. </li></ul><ul><li>Flow rate projections for the Mary River to be determined. </li></ul>
