Mudanças Climáticas

      (Video) - Mapa interativo exibe projeções do aumento do nível do mar nos EUA (em inglês) - 3/4/2012

This interactive map, designed by Stamen for Climate Central, models the likely impacts of sea-level rise on selected American cities. Users can see how storm surges and tides of various heights would affect urban areas for any of the cities shown.

Regions at risk of flooding are highlighted on the map. For a more detailed breakdown of vulnerability including statistics on land area, number of houses and population, click through to a larger version of the tool on the Climate Central website.

The figures used in the model come from this peer-reviewed scientific paper, and Climate Central provide further details about the map here.
