NY Sea, Without Place Names

 

Check out my other sea rise maps, or see the original–Burrito Justice & Brian Stokle’s map of San Francisco.

For all of these maps, I am not portraying any sea level higher than what is possible. The IPCC has estimated that the total rise would be about 66 meters.

Here’s a version without the place names:

This will happen someday, but not in our lifetimes. Some who have dared to speculate on a timeline have given themselves plenty of space for error in their predictions–one estimate says anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 years. Whatever the time frame, it is a fact that humans are speeding up this process.

  1. I would tend to doubt that all of Staten Island would be under water since a large of part of this island is well over 100 feet above sea level. It would have been nice if you didn’t leave it and the 500,000 people who live here off your map.

  3. Hi

    These are very nice looking maps. They are truly pieces of art.

    But your upper bound for sea level rise is just too high. It should be closer to 66 meters, 218′, if you remove all the ice from land.

    (The USGS info you use for the upper bound is out of date. There are better techniques now for estimating the volume of ice in Greenland and Antarctica.
    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change releases new reports that have up to date information.

    Look at Table 4.1: http://www.ipcc.ch/pdf/assessment-report/ar5/wg1/WG1AR5_Chapter04_FINAL.pdf
    )

  4. Hey Jeffrey,

    Was hoping I could get your permission to use the NY Sea map and GIF for an article on The Huffington Post? Would obviously link back to your site and credit you. Please shoot me an email and let me know. Also, maybe we could chat for a minute about how you developed these maps. Thanks so much,

    Chris

  13. I wish you had included ALL of NYC, which includes areas of the Bronx that are further North towards Westchester, and Staten Island.
