Sea-level rise

Sea-level rise layers are located under the Sea-Level Rise section in the layer selection menu, or designated as "Sea-level rise" when they appear in workspaces. SCALGO Live supports showing the flooded areas for any given sea-level rise – simply use the Water Level slider to set the desired value.

Flooded areas (marked in blue) are any part of the terrain that can be reached from the sea by at least one path that never exceeds the set sea level. Use the point query tool to determine for any point how much the sea level needs to rise before the point gets flooded from the sea.

The video below illustrates some different sea-level rise scenarios.

Demonstration of sea-level rise analysis focusing on a small island which is sorrounded by a narrow roughly 5 meter tall dike. Notice the use of point queries to get the exact sea level at which a particular location is flooded.
