This pilot project determines the potential for growing cool climate grapes, high yield pasture and blue gum across Gippsland (Victoria), and the likely shift in that potential as projected climate change occurs in the region. It provides an indication of the information that can be generated combining land suitability analysis and climate change scenarios.(More)
