IPCC AR6 Sea Level Projection Tool
Under a warming climate, sea levels around the world have been rising and are projected to continue rising in the future. The projections of future sea level rise are critical for coastal planners and policymakers trying to understand and account for sea-level impacts on their communities. Understanding the science, determining which projections to use, and having access to those projections and underlying data are challenges that stakeholders must tackle.
The tool allows users to view both global and regional sea level projections from 2020 to 2150, along with how these projections differ depending on future scenario. Users can click on a point anywhere in the ocean to obtain the IPCC projection of sea level for that individual location. The contributions of different physical processes to future sea-level rise are also provided, indicating which processes will be the dominant drivers of future sea level for a given location. Finally, users can download the sea level projection data from the IPCC 6th AR6 in multiple formats. The projections shown in the tool are consistent with those in the IPCC 6th Assessment Report and information in the tool will be linked directly to the report when available.
