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

Screenshot 2015-03-02 14.29.26

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!

  • Am cautat si eu tratamente par sector 3 si am dat de site-ul
    asta. Imi place ce ai scris si as vrea sa adaug si eu cateva cuvinte.

    Personal am fost la Jovial din Strada Sfânta Vineri,
    25, București. care au telefon: 0748 149 599 si
    i-am gasit, cautand evident salon coafor mosilor
    Vreau sa spun ca am fost multumita si ca merita sa bati drumul
    pana in centru. Am vazut ca au activitate si pe facebook si au
    si un site misto.
    Pare sau nu a reclama, eu personal am fost super incantata si vreau sa ofer si altora posibilitatea de a
    alege. Incercati si postati si voi parerea voastra despre ei.
