Submerged UK

A climate campaign

By Lauren Darn

project research

The SubmergedUK photographic campaign is based upon the Surging Seas Risk Zone Map from Climate Central. This map was used to locate towns and cities which are most likely to be submerged by rising sea levels of 29 feet; the amount which has been predicted to occur if there is a 4 degrees rise in global warming from current levels. The image below is an example of a surging seas map of the UK.
