NCCARF is delighted to announce that a new version of CoastAdapt is now available at coastadapt.com.au.
In response to comments received during review and consultation in late 2016, NCCARF has made significant additions and improvements to the CoastAdapt website. We would like to thank all those who took the time to comment for their constructive remarks.
Changes and improvements to the website include:
Getting Started: available from the home page, the Getting Started section tries to address concerns of reviewers that the amount of information in CoastAdapt is so overwhelming that people don’t know where to begin. Suggestions are provided for a wide range of adaptation roles.
New temperature and rainfall extremes data provided by CSIRO and accessed through Sea-Level Rise and You, together with an explanatory report: information for five different extremes, and for every coastal local council in Australia, is provided for time slices from the present day up to 2100.
New infographics: these simple and visually appealing one-page guides to key topics have proved very popular with CoastAdapt users. We provide new ones on risk assessment, climate model use, inundation mapping and (still to come) sediment compartments.
New case studies and snapshots, bringing the total to 67. This includes a new video case study from Far North Queensland Aboriginal Shire Councils, outlining the challenges they face from sea-level rise.
Please visit the site to explore this new information – we hope you find it enjoyable, useful and informative.

CoastAdapt was developed by NCCARF with funding from the Australian Government through the Department of the Environment and Energy
