Abstract or Description
According to the US Geological Survey, worldwide sea levels would rise by 14.61 meters if the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets were to melt due to global climate change. The red area demonstrates the land that would be under water near and around Acadia National Park if this catastrophic scenario were to occur.
Source Data Note
