North Sea Countries if All Glaciers were to Melt

If every continental and mountainous glacier were to vanish, sea levels would rise by around 70 meters (230 feet).

It's an inevitability but on a geologic time frame, not a human one.

Ultimately, the different orbital cycles that are tied for large-scale climate periods will bring us out of our modern ice age, and Antarctica and Greenland will have their forests return.

Today we are in an ice age, and most of our development has taken place in the warm interglacial period we are currently undergoing. The fact that we still have polar ice is an indicator that we are still in an ice age despite the last 12 thousand or more mild temperatures. The current interglacial is a little longer than most of them have been in the previous 400 thousand years and would likely be coming to a close relative shortly. Still, human activities in the last one hundred or so years have altered the climate dynamic. Notwithstanding our actions, we are doubtful to approach the sea levels shown in these maps due to human activities.

North sea countries if all glaciers were to melt (sea level rise of 70 meters). Rising sea levels will lead to the almost complete disappearance of Belgium.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
