Netherlands and UK - Sea Level Rise Map



Use the window in the top left of the map frame to change the amount of sea level rise.





The map above shows areas of the Netherlands and UK that would be flooded at various stages of sea level rise. You can select a value of sea level rise using the dropdown box in the upper left corner of the map. The navigation buttons can be used to zoom in/out and pan across the map.

The map clearly shows that a sea level rise of only a few meters would inundate thousands of square kilometers of highly populated and developed land. If you zoom in on Amsterdam, London, Rotterdam, Portsmouth or other areas you will clearly see the potential impact of sea level rise. Communities, highways, factories, ports, railroads and many types of industry would be flooded.

This map is not a carefully surveyed and extremely accurate presentation. It is intended to provide a visual impression of which geographic areas might be flooded if global warming and climate change continue unabated.

This sea level rise map was created by Alex Tingle of firetree.net using the Google Maps API, NASA data and lots of programming savvy. He explains how the map was created, the sea level data and issues about map accuracy here. We thank Alex for allowing us to share this map on Geology.com. Also thanks to Google and NASA for providing the resources needed to make this map.
