The report outlines the vulnerability of the Tasmanian coastline to the impacts of climate change and sea-level rise.
By integrating geomorphology and topography, the report maps coastal areas potentially vulnerable to climate change impacts such as sea-level rise. It provides a valuable tool for the assessment of coastal development, zoning and land use planning. The report does not identify 'a new risk', but rather draws together existing information into a form more useful for the Tasmanian situation.
This report is a scientific document and was commissioned and published by the Department of Primary Industries and Water. The report was released in July 2006, and updates the previous version released in April 2005.
The second edition extends the shorelines assessed for vulnerability to shoreline types not assessed in the first edition. The analysis of inundation hazard remains the same as in the first edition of the report.
