Climate futures for Tasmania

The Climate Futures for Tasmania website breaks climate change down into local information for all Tasmanian regions. The data has been sourced from the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre and provides the first fine-scale climate projections for Tasmania from 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.

There is no dairy specific information on this site, but dairy system modelling, using this Tasmanian climate data suggest that the impact of climate change over the next 30 years is largely positive for the Tasmanian dairy industry.
