Families, residents and businesses rent storage units when they're low on space – whether they're running out of room in their home or need to clear out the office to make more room for new employees. Space is limited, not just in self storage and for our belongings, but for the places in which we live. How will the rising sea levels affect the area of livable land on the coasts of America?
Have you ever wondered how the rise in sea levels will impact our surroundings? Here, we have projected the outlook of three major locations: Washington D.C. and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Miami and South Beach, and New York City and the Statue of Liberty.
The white cones on the maps show the location and angle of the camera that is seen in the corresponding illustrations. Thank you to Remik Ziemlinski from Climate Central for providing the high resolution sea level rise maps and for helping me understand the science behind sea level rise.
