[NYTimes] What Could Disappear Interactive Charts
Posted By Jonathan Miller On December 4, 2012 @ 10:00 am In Weather & Natural Disasters | No Comments
I’ve been remiss in not presenting the now week old interactive web page on the New York Times site called, alarmingly, What Could Disappear .
These maps are based on elevation data from the U.S. Geological Survey and tidal level data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Maps show the extent of potential flooding relative to local high tide. The 25-foot sea level rise is based on a 2012 study in the journal Science…
I think Sandy brought this conversation front and center in NYC. The Bloomberg administration brought this issue up last year.
While we are talking hundreds of years for an ominous 25 foot increase in sea levels, it’s a wake up call for cities located in low lying areas. How does this impact the future of real estate in these areas?
