Surging Seas Interactive Climate Change Map

Think Google Maps for the climate-conscious. Readers interested in the intersection of cartology and climatology may enjoy the Surging Seas maps created by Climate Central. Using peer-reviewed data and research, the site's interactive resources explore the imminent and long-term effects of climate change through "user-friendly maps and tools, extensive datasets, and high-quality visual presentation." Those new to sea level science may want to begin on the Basics page, where they can toggle through brief introductions on the science and history of rising sea levels. From there, readers can explore the data visualizations on the Maps & Tools page, including a "Risk Zone Map" (that explores carbon consequences on a community level) and "Ocean at the Door" (that highlights the effects of rising sea levels). Interested in exploring the peer-reviewed data used to create these interactive tools? Check out the Research page, where you can view and download reports in PDF form, find links to published papers, and learn more about the researchers' methodology. The Responses and News pages are a great place to end, as they highlight action plans, news stories, and events where visitors can learn more about sea level changes and contribute to solutions. Surging Seas is supported by a variety of foundations, including the National Science Foundation.
