Sea Level Rise Estimates Revised Upwards

Climate Progress today reported on a new article in the journal Science showing new estimates of sea level rise this century. The estimates are revised upwards to between 0.8 meters and a full 2 meters by the end of the century.

I created an interactive map back in June that used the EPA’s own data to show what the effects of sea level rise will be like in the lower 48. Have another look at that map, which will clue you in on the potentially new geography of the United States in 2100.
