Image descriptions

  • English (edit): The "Surging Seas" map blends OpenStreetMap and aerial imagery to interactively simulate sea level rise due to climate change. Here we see New York after a 10ft rise, the maximum setting. The storm surge of Hurricane Sandy brought a rise of up to 13ft.
  • Deutsch (edit): Die Karte "Surging Seas" überlagert OpenStreetMap und Luftbilder, um interaktiv den Anstieg des Meeresspiegels infolge des Klimawandels zu simulieren. Hier sehen wir New York nach einem Anstieg um 10ft, die höchstmögliche Einstellung. Bei der Sturmflut von Hurrikan Sandy gab es einen Anstieg von bis zu 13ft.
  • français (edit): les cartes « Surging Seas » (mers chirurgicales) mixent OpenStreetMap et de l'imagerie aérienne afin de simuler la montée du niveau de la mer due aux changements climatiques. Nous pouvons voir ici New York après une montée de 10 pieds (3,04 mètres), le réglage maximum. La chirurgie de tempête de l'Ouragan Sandy à entraîné une montée jusqu’à 13 pieds (3.960 mètres).
  • italiano (edit): La mappa "Surging Seas" fonde OpenStreetMap e immagini aeree per mostrare in maniera interattiva l'aumento del livello dei mari dovuto ai cambiamenti climatici. Qui si può vedere New York dopo un aumento di 10ft, l'impostazione massima. L'onda di tempesta dell'uragano Sandy ha portato un aumento fino a 13ft.
  • 简体中文 (edit): 「上升的大海」地图融合开放街图和空照图,用互动的方式呈现因气候变化造成海平面上升。这边我们看到最大的设定值,纽约一带海平面上升 10 英呎飓风珊迪的暴雨造成每平面上升 13 英呎。
  • 繁體中文 (edit): 「上昇的大海」地圖融合開放街圖和空照圖,用互動的方式呈現因氣候變化造成海平面上昇。這邊我們看到最大的設定值,紐約一帶海平面上昇 10 英呎颶風珊迪的暴雨造成每平面上昇 13 英呎。
