80m Sea Rise maps - Japan, China, Asia and South East Asia

Using Google Maps and the Sea Level Rise applet, the following maps show 80 metres of sea level rise.

Areas shaded red are those areas inundated.


Beijing and Shanghai

Central China

Vietnam and Southern China

Vietnam, Cambodia and Burma



Indonesia (West)

Indonesia (East)

Irian Jaya / Papua New Guinea

I strongly recommend you check with your local maps to review the location of the 80 metre contour in your area of interest.


  1. Hi Nigel,
    In Santa Barbara, two years ago, we started an effort to paint the 7 meter line on the streets. We had a great amount of public discussion, but ultimately the local real estate interests decided to put up enough $ for legal challenges to prevent the line from being painted. Our story is here: http://lbline.org.
    Good luck with your blog! Bruce

  2. Hi Bruce!
    Fantastic effort! Its understandable that any landowner below the x metre line is a bit unhappy about being declared surplus to establishment, but at some point the value of coastal property is going to take a dive, literally!! Nigel

  3. What about Sea Level Rise in India-Bangladesh Peninsular region on Bay of Bengal ?
