Rising Tides

I just wanted to share a cool interactive map from National Geographic I found the other day. This map shows what the world would look like if global sea level rose by 216 feet. This is the estimated sea level rise if all the ice on land, including glaciers and polar ice caps, melted and drained into the oceans. Take a look!
