World Map If Sea Levels Rise

The dead sea is located in a deep valley at the transform boundary between the african and arabia plates shown as a black line on the map above. Understanding past sea level is important for the analysis of current and future changes. One of the most dire impacts of anthropogenic climate change is a rise in the global sea level caused by the melting of glaciers and land based ice caps as well as a smaller increase from expansion due to the higher temperature of the water itself.
