Historical climate data from the Eyre Peninsula and how seasons have varied over the last 100 years
The Resilient EP project was challenged on how historical climate records can be used to make better decisions today? Seasonal climate forecasts work about two in every three seasons. Lived experience of climate extremes can provide lessons on how to manage these situations in the future. The Forecast for Profit tool indicates the likelihood of drier / wetter season based on the Indian Ocean dipole and El Nino / La Nina.
The SARDI Climate Applications group worked with the Regional Innovators to determine the influence of the combination of soil moisture and dynamic weather forecasting on farm decision making. In this video Peter Hayman from SARDI introduces historical climate data from the Eyre Peninsula and how seasons have varied over the last 100 years and introduces the Forecast for Profit tool.
