A crucial decision in defining the scope of an environmental impact assessment is to delineate the initial assessment area. We developed a probabilistic methodology to determine this area, which starts by identifying a key environmental variable, maximum acceptable change and acceptable probability of exceeding that threshold. The exceedance probability is determined with a limits of acceptability rejection sampling of informed prior parameter distributions. A qualitative uncertainty analysis, a formal and systematic discussion of the main assumptions and model choices, is complemented with global sensitivity analysis of the model results to identify the major sources of uncertainty and provide guidance for further research and data collection. For the case study on coal development in the Gloucester Basin (NSW, Australia), the initial assessment extent is unlikely to extend more than 5 km from the edge of the planned coal mines. The major source of uncertainty is the planned mine water production rate.

We present new global maps of the Köppen-Geiger climate classification at an unprecedented 1-km resolution for the present-day (1980–2016) and for projected future conditions (2071–2100) under climate change. The present-day map is derived from an ensemble of four high-resolution, topographically-corrected climatic maps. The future map is derived from an ensemble of 32 climate model projections (scenario RCP8.5), by superimposing the projected climate change anomaly on the baseline high-resolution climatic maps. For both time periods we calculate confidence levels from the ensemble spread, providing valuable indications of the reliability of the classifications. The new maps exhibit a higher classification accuracy and substantially more detail than previous maps, particularly in regions with sharp spatial or elevation gradients. We anticipate the new maps will be useful for numerous applications, including species and vegetation distribution modeling. The new maps including the associated confidence maps are freely available via
