Visualising the impact of climate change
About the 3D climate change model
As part of Bodeker Scientific's Curious Minds project, we produced an interactive educational 3D model showing the impacts of climate change in the Queenstown Lakes District.
Students and members of the public can choose which climate data they wish to see, and colour maps are projected onto the model. The viewer can see what the climate will look like for the entire district from 1975 to 2100, under their selected greenhouse gas scenarios.
The climate variables that can be chosen:
annual maximum temperature
annual minimum temperature
annual mean temperature
annual total rainfall
annual number of 'heavy rainfall' days (greater than 20mm rain)
annual number of frost days
annual number of 'summer' days (temperature greater than 25°C)
annual number of days with snow cover
Using the model for your educational event
We are pleased to offer, by arrangement, the use of the 3D model as an 'asset of the community' for educational use anywhere in New Zealand.
