In particular users can zoom in and clearly identify areas on inundation in Brisbane and Ipswich.

OzCoasta: Sea Level Rise Maps

These maps have been created by the Australian Government to illustrate the potential impacts of climate change for key urban areas. "Maps are available to show three sea level rise scenarios: low sea level rise (0.5m), medium sea level rise (0.8m) and high sea level rise (1.1m). These sea level rise scenarios are for a 2100 period, relative to 1990. The sea level rise values are based on IPCC projections (B1 and A1FI scenarios) and more recent science." It should be noted that these maps do not consider storm surge and other factors.
