Reimplementation of an old idea to show the impact of sealevel on the population. Combines population density. with an elevation map to show how many people are at risk given a certain amount of sealevel rise.
Click on the thumb-nails to see what the world map looks like given a certain amount of sealevel rise. The color intensity shows population density, so it gets you an idea of how many people are at risk given a certain value. You can zoom using the mouse wheel and drag the map around.
2 m rise - 177 million at risk
5 m rise - 374 million at risk
10 m rise - 785 million at risk
25 m rise - 1481 million at risk
50 m rise - 2200 million at risk
100 m rise - 3093 million at risk
200 m rise - 4158 million at risk
500 m rise - 5768 million at risk
