Data and Information

The output of Queensland’s climate modelling simulations is available in a range of formats to suit different end-users (see figure below).

Regionalised summary statistics are available for Local Government Areas, Regional Plan Areas, Bioregions, Major River Basins, and Disaster Districts on the Queensland Future Climate Dashboard.

Vector gridded data (shapefiles) are also available on the Queensland Future Climate Dashboard for a range of metrics and seasons for four 20-year time slices centred on 2030, 2050, 2070 and 2090 for users seeking to aggregate climate change data for different regions.

More advanced users can also get the data in gridded (raster) format from the Terrestrial and Ecosystem Research Network (TERN). Check the CMIP5 High Resolution Projections Data  link for more information about the climate projections avaiable on TERN.
