Regional climate change relevant to Hydro Tasmania (2021)$45,000
Description
THIS IS AN EXTENSION OF THE PROJECT RMBD 4708To quantify the impact, and assess the confidence in, the projected change in the occurrence of climate extremes and how the climate may change in the Tasmanian highlands to better inform impact assessment and long-term strategy for Hydro Tasmania.Key outputs: -Assess the spatial probability of the area of significant drying in the central highlands region (i.e. how fuzzy is the boundary surrounding the drying region). oThis will be completed by assessing the large-scale climate drivers of the drying trend, asking questions like is it primarily driven by: elevation effects?temperature/snow effects?broad-scale synoptic effects?o Assess the range of spatial variability of the area of significant drying across the multi-model ensemble-Assess the relative spatial sensitivity of the Hydro Tasmania hydro electric system to projected energy production capacity into the future. This will be assessed by slightly adjusting the position of the catchment boundaries (in multiple directions) and rerunning the assessment of future hydro electricity generation capacity (already completed within year 2 of the project).

Tasmanian State Disaster Risk Assessment 2021 (2021)$267,697
Description
The next state disaster risk assessment will update and build upon the 2016 assessment to:Review and update the previous assessment, to factor in recent emergency events, changing external circumstances and data and knowledge developed since then;Further consider emergent issues, such as climate change, technological impacts and local/ national/ international socio-economic issues, especially in the wake of the current pandemic;Leverage off insights from other assessments, such as recent/ current events reviews and lessons management, hazard-specific assessments and, where relevant, national and international assessments;Include further non-natural hazards, such as cyber-threats, intentional mass-casualty events, and structure collapse, as resources allow, with specific hazards to be determined. Natural hazards may also be extended, for example, to include extended periods of bushfire smoke;More explicitly focus on all dimensions of risk hazard, exposure, vulnerability and capabilities;Extend analysis to concurrent, cascading and systemic risks, for example, Natech disasters, where a natural disaster causes an industrial accident, with flow-on consequences, such as the Fukashima Nuclear plant accident after a tsunami and earthquake. Often hazard events need to be considered together, for example, dry lightning/ drought/ extended heatwaves/ bushfires/ smoke air pollution; or severe weather/ flooding/ storm surges/debris flow/ power and transport disruption;More explicitly exploring risk through reasonable worst case scenarios in line with more recent state risk assessments (eg. UK 2019, Norway 2019, WA 2017) to more easily undercover and communicate risks;Focus on practical outcomes and accessibility for significant stakeholder groups. Information accessibility and practical utility must be key considerations. Key end users of the assessments should be actively involved to ensure their needs are met.Importantly, the Assessment will provide robust and practically useful insights plus recommendations on potential treatments to reduce risk and prepare.

Federated Climate Information (2021)$500,000
Description
OverviewThis project will develop tools to streamline delivery of future climate knowledge to support decision making and reporting for Australia's industries and will also support Commonwealth objectives and initiatives related to climate and disaster risk information. This includes the National Disaster Risk Information Service Capability (NDRISC) and the CSRIO-led Climate Mission. This project is directly aligned to priority 1 of the National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework (NDRRF). Australia is situated in one of the most variable climate zones on Earth. Remaining competitive, or developing new markets will require an understanding how climate will impact on supply and demand factors. Australia's research sector has the data and expertise required to meet industry needs, however, access can be confusing and difficult. At present access to high resolution future climate data, expertise and knowledge is confusing, complex and slow. These data are vast archives (petabyte scale), managed by 4 universities and 3 state governments distributed across Australia. Each institution has its own standards, core expertise and governance structures. This makes engagement difficult and costly, especially when operating across jurisdictions. Linking these organisations together into a collaborative, coordinated federation will simplify discoverability, access and support, thus unlocking the latent potential held within these expert teams and the data archives they manage. Delivery of the full capability is divided into two phases: Part A will federate all regional climate model projections from around Australia into a collection by building a gateway server that provides access to the existing compute and storage facilities through a centralised user management system. Federation will allow expert users to rapidly, independently and easily access all the existing projection archives, and compare, summarise or interrogate the entire ensemble of model outputs. Part B provides a pathway to deliver derived products generated from regional climate projections to downstream users of all kinds. User will be able to discover which data layers exist through a curated catalogue, visualise the layers to assist with data layer interpretation, select and subset the required data layers based on their interests, summarise the data layers to meet their needs and download the data for use in their local workflows. When completed, researchers and other expert users, including the insurance sector, will produce nationally-relevant derived products through Part A, they will then submit this to Part B for consumption by end-users, who will be able to subset the provided outputs to a regional domain relevant to them. A proof of concept approach is already operational within the Climate Futures Team at University of Tasmania and is completely transferable into other systems. The web portal will include data-discovery and exploration tools, however, sophisticated visualisation and analytical tools are secondary priorities to this proposal, but will be incorporated if time and resources allow.Commonwealth Interest This project supports the Commonwealth objective to develop NDRISC and aligns to the federated architecture anticipated to be used for the national capability. Improved discoverability and access to foundational climate related information also supports the objective of the CSRIO-led Climate Mission and the integration of climate information into the risk-based decision making and operations of key sectors, including finance and insurance.Funding arrangements Full delivery of the capability (parts A and B) are assessed at approximately $1.5 million with possible implementation within 18months. The proposed funding of $400,000 in 2019-20 would be granted to the University of Tasmania to enable expansion of the existing proof-of-concept and commence development of Part A. It would also promote c

Natural Hazards Climate Atlas for Tasmania (2021)$137,150
Description
This project will build on the recently released work by Climate Futures, Australias Wine Future A Climate Atlas, which developed new approaches to provide tailored climate information for particular regions and industries. The attached atlas section gives an example of the indices that were calculated for the Tasmanian wine regions.The proposed natural hazards atlas will extend the spatial coverage to identify current and emerging climate risks across all of Tasmania and provide extensive information on extreme events such as heatwaves, fire and flood. Fine-scaled climate information will be provided in an accessible, usable form across the state to support the prioritisation of future strategic investments to help build resilience to current and emerging natural hazards. Approach:1.Identification of climate indices of highest priority to emergency management within the target regions; 2.Tailored analysis, transformation and visualisation of climate information to meet the needs of emergency managers across Tasmania;3.Dynamically downscaled regional climate model output (CCAM) to provide fine-scaled projections at 10km over Tasmania under a medium and/or high emissions scenario out to 2100. 4.Summaries for regions of interest (e.g. Local council areas or BoM forecast districts) covering indices in Table 1;5.Delivery in the form of an online atlas (static document) and the presentation of the atlas to stakeholders (live presentations recorded and made available online). 6.Focus on impacts of extreme events such as heatwaves, droughts, floods and fire.7.Calculation and validation of storm related indices (e.g. frequency, storm tracks, hail, lightning potential) and wind (Phase 2). PROJECT PURPOSE To develop a Climate atlas, specific for the Tasmanian emergency management sector. PROJECT OBJECTIVES, DELIVERABLES AND OUTPUTSOutputs:An online atlas providing information about recent, observed changes in climate and how it is projected to change into the future, at short, mid and longer time horizons.Spatial layers describing current and future natural hazards to be added to data delivery portals such as TheList.Presentations recorded and provided online for sharing more broadly across the industry and regions.Benefits:A source of relevant climate information that industry and government decision makers can use to inform operational, tactical and strategic decisions.Improved understanding of extreme events and natural hazards to help emergency managers and communities report on, minimise and adapt to climate risks.

Future Climate Trajectories - Comparing Australian Wine Regions to other International Wine Regions out to 2100 (2020)$24,745
Description
A recently-completed Wine Australia project (the UT 1504 Project), entitled Australias wine future: adapting to short- term climate variability and long-term climate change, aimed to provide the wine sector with user-friendly, fine-scale, tailored climate information which includes both short-term predictions and long-term projections. Such information will inform management decisions as well as strategic decisions for the sector to manage climate variability over the longer term. The project outputs were presented to Wine Australia in December 2019 in the form of Australias Wine Future A Climate Atlas (the Atlas). Feedback on Figure 18 (see Figure 1 below) from the Atlas was that it neatly captured a key output from the UT 1504 Project, namely, that it describes projected future trajectories of change for all Australian wine regions (considering both temperature and aridity changes). It was identified that adding and/or incorporating the projected changes expected for other regions around the world into the Figure 1 below would be strategically useful for mitigating the risk that international critics of the Australian wine industry may misuse and/or misrepresent the climate outputs from the Atlas.

Climate Atlas webinars to wine industry associations (2020)$16,500
Description
Wine Australia recognises the importance of extending the impact of the recently released Australias Wine Future A Climate Atlas so that as broad an audience as possible can benefit from improved information about potential climate impacts. This project focuses on targeted engagement with the Regional Program clusters. It will assist them to understand the value of the atlas and how it can inform decision making across their regions, including the specific risks they will have to manage across different parts of Australia. Stage A is to provide tailored webinars to the Wine sector via the Wine Australia Regional Program Clusters. The webinars will be recorded and will have national promotion via the Wine Australia website but will also rely on regional program partners to be involved in the design and promotion in their regionStage B is based on the follow up surveys post webinars and will determine what other extension materials the Regions might require after having been exposed to the information in the Climate Atlas. It is envisaged that the potential climate impact information in the form of additional webinars, recordings and/or printed material be used in the Regional program activities and workshops in the future. While there will be limited extension funds available beyond the initial webinar roll out; subject to regional needs post webinar Wine Australia will consider and prioritise stage B activities gleaned from webinar responses and/or devolve further activities through regional program partner activities.PROJECT PURPOSE To provide tailored interpretation of the Climate atlas, specific for each Wine Australia Regional Cluster.PROJECT OBJECTIVES, DELIVERABLES AND OUTPUTSFor each region, this project will deliver: -an initial meeting to discuss the Regions needs and interests in order to define the scope of the webinar, which will allow the project team to tailor the content to meet the regions needs. -Deliver a webinar to the region, where content has been tailored to meet their specific needs, and interests.

Evaluation of the susceptibility of Tasmania's agricultural sector to insect pest species under a changing climate (2020 - 2021)$49,744
Description
Tasmania is often referred to as a future breadbasket of the country, and extensive investment is planned to take advantage of the warmer climate (West 2009). However, warmer conditions increase the potential for new pest species to establish permanent populations in Tasmania. Until recently, species introduced from warmer regions have been constrained by growing seasons that are too short, or winters that are too cold. This is changing. Not only are new pest species likely to establish under future climate conditions, but the activity and impact of existing pests may also increase, as population growth rates rise and higher survival and development rates lead to an increased number of generations per year. With more intensive irrigation and agriculture planned, across more diverse crops, the risk is further increased. This potential for increased risk has not yet been systematically studied.Using the most up-to-date, fine resolution climate projections available in Australia, this project will identify species that may become commercially important agricultural pests in Tasmania under a changing climate. It will extend previous research (e.g. Holz et al. 2010, Sultana et al. 2017) on future changes to the distribution of the Queensland Fruit Fly, to incorporate lifecycle information at a fine spatial and temporal resolution and to investigate changes in growth and number of generations on seasonal and inter-annual timescales. The improved precision of the downscaled simulations will allow policy makers to be more strategic in their planning of surveillance networks and in the design of pest management strategies for the future. The results from this case study will be used to develop a methodology for assessing changing pest risk, to communicate the potential for change to occur over the next decades and engage industry stakeholders in ongoing research. Project outcomes will include a comprehensive list of species considered to be of high risk to the agricultural industry in Tasmania, based on industry engagement, existing data, and an assessment of life history traits and current distribution. This research will provide essential information about the susceptibility of Tasmanias agricultural sector to insect pest species now and in the future. This will improve our preparedness for change and ability to maintain pest-free status; facilitate more informed trading arrangements (e.g., winter window arrangements); and enhance the capacity of the Tasmanian government and industry to manage the risks posed by insect pest species currently arriving in Tasmania and to proactively and strategically plan for future biosecurity risks.

Understanding the economic burden of climate-related extreme events: A framework to support future planning and decision making in the health care sector (2020 - 2021)$57,528
Description
This project blends climate change projection data with health economics to estimate the future health and economic impact of climate-related extreme events in Tasmania. By building on our teams previous research examining the historical impact of heatwaves on Tasmanias health system, this research provides a foundation for policy development and health system planning. Importantly, in addition to specific information on heatwave impacts, this research will provide a generalisable framework to allow the health economic impact of climate change to be estimated for other climate-related natural disasters and compound extreme events. This information can be used by health care services both in Tasmania and across other jurisdictions.

An assessment of the viability of prescribed burning as a management tool under a changing climate - Stage 2 (2018 - 2019)$136,533
Description
Recent research by the ACE CRC suggests there may be fewer opportunities for prescribed burning in the future as autumn and spring become warmer and drier. Changes to vegetation may also need to be considered when planning fuel management. In workshops associated with the research, Tasmanian fire managers identified several aspects that would enhance the research to help them make decisions about the timing of prescribed burning in the future. These are to:i)assess changes in plant productivity throughout the year, to indicate potential changes to fuel growth in the future;ii)further refine the vegetation model to incorporate fire intensity and improve the representation of fuel treatments;iii)model the future distributions of target species and vegetation communities (eg. Athrotaxis, alpine/subalpine communities) that may not persist under climate change;iv)assess combinations of extreme events that may occur simultaneously or successively to influence bushfire behaviour or amplify its severity in the autumn/spring periods.

High-Resolution Reanalysis for Tasmania project: Stage 3 (2018 - 2019)$50,000
Description
A reanalysis is a consistent reconstruction of the state of the atmosphere through time. This data allows users to compare weather parameters such as wind, rainfall or temperature (or derived quantities such as fire danger) through time and across the area of the reanalysis, and provides a complete description of the weather in the reanalysis domain. This project will generate a reanalysis dataset for Tasmania at 1.5 km grid spacing with hourly time steps for a 25-year period, producing a high-resolution meteorological and climatological data to inform emergency management and disaster risk activities in Tasmania. The Bureau of Meteorology has agreed to produce the reanalysis for Tasmania for ACE CRC, forming part of a wider project that will generate a nationwide Australian reanalysis product at a lower 12 km resolution. In the first phase of the project (Stage 1), the Bureau of Meteorology will provide a 5-year high-resolution NWP climatology for Tasmania at a spatial resolution of about 5 km and at an hourly time step. Both ACE CRC and the Bureau of Meteorology have declared their intention to provide the 25-year high-resolution reanalysis at 1.5 km resolution for Tasmania (Stage 2) if the Tasmania State Emergency Service provides the required additional funding in 2016.Project partners will evaluate the dataset, both at the broad scale and for specific sub-regions and time periods in considerable detail to ensure the quality of the data, with the resulting approximately 70 terabytes of data stored by TPAC. Partners will engage with stakeholders to highlight the implications of the results for emergency management in Tasmania. On completion, project and technical reports will be presented, and peer-review journal articles prepared.

High-Resolution Reanalysis for Tasmania Project: Stage 2 (2016 - 2017)$74,889
Description
A reanalysis is a consistent reconstruction of the state of the atmosphere through time. This data allows users to compare weather parameters such as wind, rainfall or temperature (or derived quantities such as fire danger) through time and across the area of the reanalysis, and provides a complete description of the weather in the reanalysis domain. This project will generate a reanalysis dataset for Tasmania at 1.5 km grid spacing with hourly time steps for a 25-year period, producing a high-resolution meteorological and climatological data to inform emergency management and disaster risk activities in Tasmania. The Bureau of Meteorology has agreed to produce the reanalysis for Tasmania for ACE CRC, forming part of a wider project that will generate a nationwide Australian reanalysis product at a lower 12 km resolution. In the first phase of the project (Stage 1), the Bureau of Meteorology will provide a 5-year high-resolution NWP climatology for Tasmania at a spatial resolution of about 5 km and at an hourly time step. Both ACE CRC and the Bureau of Meteorology will then provide the 25-year high-resolution reanalysis at 1.5 km resolution for Tasmania (Stages 2 and 3) if the Tasmania State Emergency Service provides the required additional funding in 2016 and again in 2017.Project partners will evaluate the dataset, both at the broad scale and for specific sub-regions and time periods in considerable detail to ensure the quality of the data, with the resulting approximately 70 terabytes of data stored by TPAC. Partners will engage with stakeholders to highlight the implications of the results for emergency management in Tasmania. On completion, project and technical reports will be presented, and peer-review journal articles prepared.

An assessment of the viability of prescribed burning as a management tool under a changing climate (2015 - 2016)$130,000
Description
The project will investigate three aspects that could affect the viability of prescribed burning under climate change.1. Changes in the seasonality of factors that determine when prescribed burning can be applied;2. Changes in the frequency and seasonality of daily weather patterns related to prescribed burning;3. Changes to broad vegetation types caused by the interaction between climate change and frequency of burning (natural or prescribed).

Natural Disaster Risk Assessment for Tasmania Project (2015)$131,000
Description
Tasmania suffers from natural disasters consistent with its climate and geographical location. Historical records show that natural disasters in Tasmania have a significant impact in terms of loss of life, property and infrastructure. In 2012, the State Emergency Service (SES) Tasmania produced the states first comprehensive natural disaster risk assessment report - the Tasmanian State Natural Disaster Risk Assessment (TSNDRA). The report was based on the National Emergency Risk Assessment Guidelines (NERAG). A revision of the TSNDRA 2012 report has been identified by the State Government as a priority project for Tasmania in 2015. This report will build upon the 2012 TSNDRA report and identify both existing and newly identified hazard-specific gaps. A series of hazard-specific workshops will be held, including flood, bushfire, storm and landslide, as well as other hazards such as coastal, biosecurity and pandemic that were identified but not covered in TSNDRA 2012. The project will provide Tasmania with a revised state-wide natural disaster risk assessment in line with the new NERAG guidelines and across the full range of sources of uncertainty. A public version of the report will be produced, together with a summary report and fact sheets. This report will become an invaluable resource for natural hazard risk assessment and hazard risk management practitioners, and those involved in natural hazards mitigation and policy at all levels of government and emergency management. The project will also include the provision of an updated High Level Risk Treatment Plan for the State Emergency Management Committee (SEMC) to enable them to work with agencies across Tasmania to inform strategies to successfully mitigate the states current and future vulnerability to natural disasters.

High-Resolution Reanalysis for Tasmania Project: Stage 1 (2015 - 2016)$160,000
Description
A reanalysis is a consistent reconstruction of the state of the atmosphere through time. This allows users to compare weatherparameters such as wind, rainfall or temperature (or derived quantities such as fire danger) through time and across the area of the reanalysis, and provides a complete description of the weather in the reanalysis domain. The Department of Environment and Primary Industry (DEPI), Victoria, commissioned the Desert Research Institute (DRI), Nevada, to create a reanalysis for Victoria, with a resolution of 4 km and 1 hour. A Tasmanian project would leverage off the experience, and some of the background data, of the Victorian reanalysis. The project will generate a reanalysis dataset for Tasmania at 3 km grid spacingwith 1 hour time steps for 1980-2014. Project partners will evaluate the dataset, both at the broad scale and for specific sub regions and time periods in considerable detail to ensure the quality of the data, with the resulting approximately 70 terabytes of data stored by TPAC. A user interface will be constructed for data access, and partners will engage with stakeholders to highlight the implications of the results for emergency management in Tasmania. On completion, project and technical reports will be presented, and peer-review journal articles prepared.
