Australian Rainfall and Runoff – The Interim Climate Change Guideline

This report provides a new approach to reduce key uncertainties for decision makers in Australia. The Interim Guideline for Climate Change for the Australian Rainfall and Runoff (ARR) draws on the most recent climate science and new climate change projections to better inform decision making regarding the region's infrastructure. The approach incorporates numerous factors related to infrastructure and climate change in order to make better plans for new assets and mitigate potential damage to existing ones. Read More...

Cresting Research: June 2015 Selected AGWA Reading

Bridging the gap between climate science and engineering practice

How can we balance future needs for engineered infrastructure with the risks posed by the effects of climate change on long-term engineering projects? How do engineers plan for the likely effects of climate change while acknowledging the uncertain nature of when, where, and how they will manifest? The second installment of “Cresting Research” (AGWA’s research spotlight) will focus on the technical requirements and civil engineering challenges raised by adaptation to a changing climate.
