The Science Division from the Department of Environment and Sciences (DES) developed comprehensive set of high resolution climate change projections for Queensland to underpin the Queensland Climate Adaptation Strategy (Q-CAS). Check out the Understanding the data to learn more about climate change modelling and Queensland’s high resolution future climate data.
Access to the data to support climate adaptation plans is available through the online platform Queensland Future Climate Dashboard. 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.
To understand how climate projections can support adaptation, have a look at our Adapting to Future Climate section.
The Data and Information section describes the data types about Queensland’s climate modelling simulations currently available.
For more information about future climate see Additional Resources.
