Simulated Sea Level Rise and Flooding in Miami

In the last decade, the speed at which Florida’s sea level is rising has increased and is now rising by as much as 1 inch every 3 years. Around Miami, it took around 31 years for the sea level to rise by 6 inches. Scientists now forecast that in just the next 15 years, the sea level will have risen by another 6 inches.

This simulation use elevation data from the city of Miami and NOAA sea rise datasets.
