Coastal City Slickers Beware!

rcp85_2100New Scientist has recently published a map of populated areas which will eventually be under water as sea levels rise inside of a century. Sea levels are on the rise, but due to a variety of factors, they aren’t rising evenly. Tropical levels are 10-20% more than other regions, for example.

4418331329_d0da83be3b_zGerman researcher Mahé Perrette of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research has modeled the interactive map on known variables to give a glimpse of the coastlines of 2100 CE. Perusing New Scientist’s interactive map is both fun and informative. Looks like I’ll be retiring right here, well enough inland!
