NASA’s interactive online tool, along with providing snapshots of rising sea levels in the decades to come, enables users to focus on the effects of different processes that drive sea-level rise. Check it out.

  • Unless mankind makes a sincere and robust effort to stall the increase in greenhouse gases, the Earth’s climate is in peril.
  • The IPCC has provided global-scale assessments of Earths climate every five to seven years since 1988, focusing on changes in temperature, ice cover, greenhouse gas emissions, and sea level across the planet.
  • Now NASA provides an interactive tool based on that data and lets us know how much the sea water may rise in which decade.

In its starkest warning yet, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has sounded out that major climate changes are inevitable and irreversible. The latest report by the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change warns temperatures likely to rise by more than 1.5C bringing widespread extreme weather.
Part of the fallout (apart from several other shocking tragedies like food shortages, crop failures, land degradation etc) is that Rising seas will exacerbate problems that coastal communities, warns NASA.
The coastal communities are already dealing with, including high-tide, or “nuisance,” floods. Many coast-front roadways like the one in Virginia are among the consequences of such floods.
NASA Proves an Online Tool:
A new online visualization tool will enable anyone to see what sea levels will look like anywhere in the world in the decades to come, says NASA.NASA’s Sea Level Change Team has created a sea-level projection tool that makes extensive data on the future sea-level rise from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).NASA says it has made the link easily accessible to the public – and to everyone with a stake in planning for the changes to come. Climate Change is one crisis that requires all hands on the deck – the more people join in the efforts to stop further damage and attempt reversal of the catastrophe, the better it is for Planet Earth.
How to Use the interactive tool:

  1. Click on the web link provided by NASA. (Type in the URL address bar:
  2. Pull up the tool’s layers of maps, click anywhere on the global ocean and coastlines.
  3. Now choose any decade between 2020 and 2150.
  4. The tool, hosted on NASA’s Sea Level Portal, will deliver a detailed report for the location based on the projections in the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report.
  5. The IPCC report was released on 9th August 2021, which addresses the most updated physical understanding of the climate system and climate change.

In July, NASA has already warned that in the mid-2030s, every US coast will experience rapidly increasing high tide floods, when a lunar cycle will amplify rising sea levels caused by climate change.
This interactive tool (hosted on NASA’s Sea Level Portal ) can help you check the future of the coastline where you reside or any coastline, for that sake. 
Use it to avert the impending ruin:Along with providing snapshots of rising sea levels in the decades to come, the tool enables users to focus on the effects of different processes that drive sea-level rise. Those processes include the melting of ice sheets and glaciers and the extent to which ocean waters shift their circulation patterns or expand as they warm, which can affect the height of the ocean.
This tool also gives hope for the future. A low-emission future, for example, would occur if humanity reduces its greenhouse gas emissions, lessening the effects of climate-driven sea level change, says NASA. 
The sea level projection tool should help people at all levels of government in countries around the world to forecast future scenarios and to develop coastal resources accordingly. “Making sea-level science accessible is our primary goal,” said Carmen Boening, a NASA oceanographer who also heads the agency’s Sea Level Portal, which hosts the projection tool.
