UK H2O +84m

UK H2O +84m is a poster that shows the new outline of the United Kingdom that would follow if all global ice sheets would melt as the result of continued global warming.

According to the UK Hazard Research Centre at the University of Central London this would result in a sea level rise of 84 metres. Although this itself might take a few thousands of years to take place the effect is dramatic.

The map itself was put together using mathematical binary data from NASA’s shuttle topography mission. By a lengthly series of steps to manipulate this data the following image was created.

Although shown here at small scale, the final size of the poster is 1000mm by 700mm and is screenprinted.
