The Queensland Future Climate Dashboard summarises information of 11
state-of-the-art climate models with regional scale simulations until the end of the current
century. The dashboard is a visualisation platform composed of drop-down menus, maps, plots and
tables whereby users can customise, visualise and export summarised future climate information
according to their interest.
The Queensland Future Climate Dashboard provides high resolution simulations
for 30 different metrics grouped in six climate themes: (i) Mean Climate; (ii) Heatwaves; (iii)
Extreme Temperature Indices; (iv) Extreme Precipitation Indices; (v) SPI-drought indices; and (vi)
SPI-wetness indices. The spatial information for regional projections was spatially aggregated from
10 km pixel-size grids to specific regions. The following five specific regions in which regional
projections are presented are: (i) Local Government Areas; (ii) Regional Plan Areas; (iii)
Bioregions; (iv) Major River Basins; and (v) Disaster Districts. In addition, users can visualize
and download future climate data across calendar seasons, wet and dry periods as well as annual
basis. Information is summarized for four 20-year time slices centred in 2030, 2050, 2070 and 2090.
The Queensland Future Climate Dashboard was designed to underpin the
Queensland Climate Adaptation Strategy (Q-CAS) .
