Sea level rise map

This application illustrates some potential consequences of sea level rise in Olympia,WA. Pull the slide to see the effects of sea level rise on the city. Check the boxes to show the locations of storage tanks that may be at risk from sea level rise, as well as tanks that are already leaking.

Please mind that these heights are relative to what the Google Earth Plug-In has determined to be sea level height. The bottom of the screen also will give the elevation below the pointer as well as the date of the image

Note that in the Puget Sound, extreme tides may rise 10 feet higher than local mean sea level (which is 8 feet for Olympia).
