Melting glaciers and rising oceans?

News on climate change indicates that sea levels may rise in the future as glaciers melt, but it's sometimes hard to figure out what that means. While it can't predict what will happen, flood maps claims to show what land would be covered at different amounts of sea level change based on NASA data (check their accuracy estimates before making serious plans!). Navigate to your part of the world (or a part you care particularly about), set the sea level rise in the drop-down box, and see what might be under water.
