Sea Level Plus Features, Examples and Screenshots

The linked pages illustrate screenshots of a number of maps prepared with Sea Level Plus . The zoom levels were selected to produce uniform images containing the desired information. Larger or smaller images can be prepared, depending on individual needs. Additionally, Sea Level Plus contains many maps not demonstrated here (over 800 in total). The included maps and overlays may be combined with one another, with built-in World Wind imagery and layers, or with compatible, third-party addons.

Sea Level Maps

Sea Level Plus 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. Sea Level Maps are included at 1 meter intervals for sea levels up to 10 meters above current levels. Higher Sea level Maps depict 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80 meters higher.


Coastal Risk

Sea Level Plus provides very high resolution (~500 m) maps of the vulnerability of coastal regions to effect of rising sea levels, flooding and storm surges.


Carbon and Greenhouse Gases

Sea Level Plus 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.


Energy Economics

Sea Level Plus 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.


Sea Ice and Land Ice

Sea Level Plus 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.


Temperature and Heat

Sea Level Plus 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.


Effects of Climate Change

Sea Level Plus 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 provided.


Drought and Cities

Sea Level Plus examines annual global drought conditions based on high resolution satellite measurements. Sea Level Plus also identifies cities and towns in coastal regions with low elevations, where a large portion of the world's population resides.


Other Features

Sea Level Plus also includes plain backgrounds, shaded relief background maps, coastline, contours and locations of important ocean currents.
