Disturbing before-and-after photos show how US cities — and their famous landmarks — could be underwater in 80 years

The more scientists study sea-level rise, the more daunting their predictions for coastal cities become. 

A few years ago, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicted that the world's sea levels would rise an additional 3 feet by 2100. But earlier this week, a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences more than doubled this worst-case estimate, predicting that sea levels could rise by around 6.5 feet in the same time frame.

For coastal cities like New York and San Francisco, this spells bad news for low-lying waterfront neighborhoods — and the many landmarks within them.   

Climate Central's Google Earth plug-in shows what US cities would look like in the most extreme cases of sea-level rise. The tool estimates which areas  of cities could be underwater by 2100 if sea levels were to rise by 8 feet — the worst-case projection from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency data.

Here are the major US cities and landmarks that could be underwater in 80 years.

Last year was the warmest on record for the planet's oceans, and the fourth-warmest year ever for the Earth's surface temperature. Scientists are discovering that Greenland and Antarctica's ice sheets are melting much faster than they previously thought. Melting glaciers and warmer oceans will contribute to devastating sea-level rise in the next 80 years. If the worst-case projections are correct, US cities like San Francisco and New York — and their famous landmarks — could be underwater by 2100. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
