Climate Central’s and Zillow’s Surging Seas: Ocean at the Door map shows areas, homes, and home value at risk of annual flooding or worse as sea levels rise, projected for the year 2050, assuming unchecked pollution and early instability of Antarctica. See the full report here.
This map shows local projected sea levels for the year 2100 under different carbon pollution scenarios, and is based on peer-reviewed research that incorporates potential impacts of Antarctic ice dynamics on sea levels.
This map shows projected U.S. sea levels for the year 2100 under the “extreme” sea level rise scenario published in NOAA Technical Report NOS CO-OPS 083 (January 2017), which corresponds to rapid ice loss in West Antarctica this century. Search for any coastal location in the U.S. to see the extreme scenario projections.
This tool allows you to overlay a Surging Seas sea level rise KML layer in Google Earth for web to visualize the projected U.S. sea levels for the year 2100 under the “extreme” sea level rise scenario published in NOAA Technical Report NOS CO-OPS 083 (January 2017).
This map shows U.S. land below 20 feet (6 meters) above the high tide line –– this is the minimum amount of sea level rise that is projected from 2 degrees Celsius (3.6°F) of global warming (Dutton et al. 2015).
