Maps of Cities If 1/3 Ice Sheets Melted: “Bay of LA” and “NY Sea”

Designer and cartographer Jeffrey Lin has designed a tool on his blog Spatialities to visualize cities across the world in cases of extreme flooding. The US Geological Survey data reports this to be about 80 meters, or 262 feet.  As reported by Gizmodo“The maps that show what will happen within our children’s or grandchildren’s lifetimes is fairly well-worn territory. What I haven’t seen much of are maps that take it to the end point of what is possible in a thousand or more years.” As Linn points out on his blog, “the numbers I used to determine the sea levels in my models were taken from a USGS study on possible sea level rise (see http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/fs2-00/). According to this USGS data, the total possible sea level rise is 80.32 meters, or 263.5 feet. In these maps, I may render a sea level lower than the maximum and still call it “all”, just for simplicity’s sake in the description. I never render sea levels higher than what is possible from melted ice according to the USGS.”

    Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?

    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Appreciate it
