Climate change means that the past climate of Northern Australia may not be a reliable guide to future conditions.
|The May 15 webinar will help you understand |
more about northern Australia's climate.
Climate change projections provide us with information and data about how rainfall, temperature and other aspects of climate may change in the future.
Information about future changes in the timing, amount and variability of wet season or summer monsoon rainfall is important for a variety of Northern Australian communities, industries and decision makers.
While climate models agree that temperatures will increase over Northern Australia under a range of future greenhouse gas emission scenarios, projected changes in rainfall are less clear.
For example, under a high emissions scenario climate models project wet season rainfall changes ranging from a decrease of 25 percent to an increase of 25 percent by the end of the century.
