The Aquatic Refuge MCAS‐S Datapack the Tasmanian Midlands is made up of spatial data in a form that can be readily opened, displayed and interpreted using MCAS‐S software and a worked example of an MCAS‐S query (known as an MCAS‐S ‘project’). The datapack was designed for the purpose of identifying river locations that could act as climate refuges for aquatic biota. The types of input data/layers considered for the analysis included topographical features, groundwater inflows, tree cover, solar radiation and enhanced flows associated with climate change or shandying for irrigation (transport of irrigation water along natural waterways). Data on land tenure/protection and biological condition are also included for the purpose of prioritising refuges.
The worked example includes a functional model that can be opened with MCAS‐S and a user's guide to describe the spatial data in the datapack and provide detailed instructions on how these data can be integrated and analysed within MCAS‐S and also how the model structure can be modified for decision support.
