Maps of Lands Vulnerable to Sea Level Rise
IPCC Working Group II, Fourth Assessment Report, Chapter 6, Coastal Systems and Low-Lying Areas (PDF, 43 pp., 1.94 MB, )
The maps that follow in this section were produced in conjunction with the report, "Maps of Lands Vulnerable to Sea Level Rise: Modeled Elevations along the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf Coasts," which was originally published in Climate Research (2001).
The maps illustrate lands close to sea level along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. The maps are presented in a thumbnail format; click the thumbnails for a full screen (html) view or follow the accompanying links for high-resolution, full-page (pdf) color and black & white versions of the map.
