% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



Nasa and JPL just released a new gradient interactive map detailing the effects of rising sea levels around the world! Everything’s flooded! Although no dates are given, it seems to be a huge warning sign for anyone living in coastal cities around the US! Are they pushing global warming and climate change?

NASA considers which cities will flood as ice sheets melt

The simulation suggests New York will be most directly affected by melting in the northern and eastern portions of Greenland’s ice sheet.

Nov. 16 (UPI) – As ice sheets on Greenland and Antartica melt, which cities are most liable to flood? NASA scientists have built a new simulation to help coastal planners find answers.

Scientists know where meltwater will enter the ocean, but a combination of factors determining where that excess water will end up is more complicated.

The new simulation analyzes the planet’s spin rate and gravitational field to more accurately predict how meltwater will be redistributed globally — revealing where sea levels will rise most dramatically.

Scientists and coastal planners can use the simulation to determine which glaciers and meltwater drainage systems will affect their risk of flooding most directly.

Researchers described their forecasting tool in the journal Science Advances.

“As cities and countries attempt to build plans to mitigate flooding, they have to be thinking about 100 years in the future and they want to assess risk in the same way that insurance companies do,” Erik Ivins, senior scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, told BBC.

The simulation suggests New York will be most directly affected by melting in the northern and eastern portions of Greenland’s ice sheet. London will be most directly impacted by meltwater spilling off Greenland’s northeastern coast.

In the Southern Hemisphere, the city of Sydney is likely to be most affected by melting on the northern half of Antarctica.

The distribution of water in the oceans — including meltwater — is dictated by Earth’s gravity and rotation. As ice melts, the gravitational pull of the ice sheet is diminished. The shrinking ice sheets allow the compressed land beneath to expand, altering the local gravity fields.

The wobbly spin of the Earth also affects water distribution. As masses shift as a result of melting ice and expanding land, the nature of Earth’s wobble and spin is affected. By analyzing these factors, scientists can estimate where additional meltwater will end up over time.

“We can compute the exact sensitivity — for a specific town — of a sea level to every ice mass in the world,” lead researcher Eric Larour said. “This gives you an idea, for your own city, of which glaciers, ice sheets and ice caps are of specific importance.”

Related research efforts are focusing on predicting which portions of the ice sheets on Greenland and Antarctica are most vulnerable in order to to provide the simulation with the most accurate forecasts.

    OH NOES! ANOTHER BOMBSHELL from due diligence.

    It’s the end.

    Run, hide.

    Noah’s second flood is apparently imminent. Again.

    • The Troubles

      Major, I do agree with your statement.

      :idea: :arrow: NASA, since when did they start telling we the people the TRUTH? :eek:

      :arrow: Since NEVER. NASA stands for “Not A Space Agency” and is the biggest black hole of nothingness that has ever been created by man kind. :twisted:

      • Sean

        The new simulation analyzes the planet’s spin rate. :lol:

        I have a washing machine that spins unlike the Earth…Due D.

        Elton John – Daniel – with slow motion of the night sky

  • YellowRoseTx51

    Thats just another lie.
    Sea level has dropped 2 years running. They cant explain it.

    • unidentified

      not everywhere because florida is either sinking or the water is rising :cool:

    • Andy

      - global warming is causing the sea levels to drop
      - global warming is also causing a massive increase in ice at both poles
      - global warming is also responsible for hundred+ yr cold records being broken the world over
      - global warming is the reason winter started in the fall this year
      - global warming is also responsible for the upcoming “maunder minimum”

      in fact, global warming is so very powerful, it is warming the other planets in our solar system as well – it really is amazing what a tiny amount of CO2 can do

  • ledgeduc

    Ice sheets are melting due to volcanic activity beneath them not because of mankind according to NASA.

  • Andy

    “Nasa and JPL just released a new gradient interactive map detailing the effects of rising sea levels around the world!”

    you really should do a little more research – ocean level are currently FALLING due to the massive build-up of ice at both poles

  • Pink Slime

    It’s bad enough worrying about whether Bill and Hillary will NOT go to jail and NOW THIS?? :twisted:
