New York City and Sea Level Rise

Figure 11.3

This figure appears in chapter 11 of the Climate Change Impacts in the United States: The Third National Climate Assessment report.

Map shows areas in New York’s five boroughs that are projected to face increased flooding over the next 70 years, assuming an increased rate of sea level rise from the past century’s average. As sea level rises, storm surges reach farther inland. Map does not represent precise flood boundaries, but illustrates projected increases in areas flooded under various sea level rise scenarios.
