Climate data for NSW and the ACT from the NARCliM Project delivered in 2014

In 2014, the first fine-scale downscaled regional climate projections for south-eastern Australia were produced from the NSW and ACT Regional Climate Modelling (NARCliM) Project. NARCliM draws on global climate models and incorporates regional climatic processes to represent local climates across southeast Australia, including NSW and the ACT. Developed by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) Climate Research Team, NARCliM projections provide locally-specific information and data on how the NSW climate is changing and will likely change in the future under a business-as-usual scenario. Local government, business and communities in NSW can use this information to estimate the likely impacts of a changing climate, assess climate risks and better plan for our future. The NARCliM project (completed in 2014) was a successful partnership between the NSW and ACT governments, the University of NSW, and several NSW Government agencies.
