Sea Rise near Leeds & York


3 Meters

I’m working with the folks at the University of Leeds on a graphic novel depicting life in England in 200 years–if nothing is done to curb carbon emissions. It’s a sequel to their graphic novel about a low carbon future. The maps will be centered around York and Leeds, and includes the surrounding counties. The first three images will be a part of the novel, and show sea levels at 3, 5 and 8 meters.

The grey outlines are the boundaries of the two cities…Leeds to the west, York to the east.

These maps are based on sea rise elevations estimated by the IPCC. Scroll down for other sea rise levels…
