A computer simulation of flooded zones in New York in 2050, based on calculations by the New York Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability. According to calculations, the sea level in the city could rise by more than three-quarters of a meter (2.5 feet) by 2050, and by one-and-a-half meters 30 years later.
