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) .
