is a compilation of potential sea
level scenarios and current climate change science based on the latest available data. Data categories
include High Resolution Sea Level Maps, Risk to Coastal Regions, Carbon Cycle, Fossil Fuel and Energy Economics,
Changes in Sea Ice and Land Ice, Risks to Coral Reefs, Increasing Temperature and Heat Content,
Drought and Vulnerable Populations.
contains over 800 maps
in total, covering numerous aspects global and regional causes and effects of climate change.
Maps are provided at the highest resolutions publicly available to facilitate exploring these
crucial phenomena in detail around the world.
allows you to readily visualize
the complex biological and human factors that underlie the behavior of Earth's climate.
It is designed to provide a scientific reference source of climate change data, as
well as an intuitive interface for the educational exploration of this field.
contains 20 high resolution (~1 km) maps of sea level from the
current level to 80 meters higher (the theoretical rise with complete melting of the Greenland and
Antarctic ice caps.
provides very high resolution (~500 m) maps of the vulnerability
of coastal regions to effect of rising sea levels, flooding and storm surges.
incorporates maps of the Carbon Cycle and Greenhouse gases.
Biological Carbon reservoirs and conversion of carbon dioxide are presented on land and in the
oceans. Global and country-wise distributions and production of carbon dioxide are analyzed,
according to a variety of criteria.
examines the economic statistics of national consumption
and production of the major categories of energy and includes relative dependencies on
renewable and non-renewable sources of electrical generation.
provides an assortment of data illustrating the properties
and changes in Earth's cryosphere. It compiles maps of Monthly Sea Ice Concentrations for over
30 years and includes maps and contours of historical statistics for comparison. It also includes
characteristics of the ice sheets covering Greenland and Antarctica, as well as the extent and
types of Northern Hemisphere permafrost.
supplies long term analyses of the thermal changes that
have occurred over the last 50 years. Global fluctuations of heat and temperature are provided
for atmospheric and marine systems.
includes maps of a number of the effects observed and
predicted with rising global temperatures, such as sea level rise, deaths attributable to
climate change and risk of desertification. Monthly bleaching conditions for coral reefs since
2001 are also depicted.
also examines annual global drought conditions based on
high resolution satellite measurements.
identifies cities and towns in coastal regions with low
elevations. Economics losses from increased coastal flooding and storm surges has been
estimated to reach 50-60 billion USD by 2050. Two thirds of the cities with more than 5 million
inhabitants lie 10 meters or less above sea level.
