The Marine Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Report Card for Australia provides a bi-annual guide for scientists, government and the community reviewing observed and projected impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems.
Funding for the project has come from the Australian Climate Change Science Program, the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility and CSIRO’s Climate Adaptation Flagship.
In this vodcast, Dr Alistair Hobday from CSIRO's Climate Adaptation National Research Flagship details the report card and some of the identified impacts of climate change.
