What does our planet look like with 1 kilometre of sea-level rise or drop?

If all the ice on Earth were to melt, it could lead to a global sea level rise of approximately 70 meters (230 feet), according to estimates from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Under no climate change scenario will there be an increase in the level of the world's oceans by more than 100 meters. However, it's intriguing to examine a hypothetical world map displaying a 1-kilometer increase in global sea level. 

The first two maps show what our planet looks like if sea levels were to rise by 1000 meters, how much of the planet's surface would still be above water.

Even if all the ice on our planet melted, the sea level would only increase by 70 - 100 meters. The maps above are just a bit of fiction.

The world maps with 1000 meters sea-level drop more realistic.

Suppose our planet's magnetic field faded, the atmosphere to be blown out into space. When atmospheric pressure drops low enough, water will start to evaporate taken by the solar wind.

Moose population in North America

The moose ( Alces alces ) is the largest member of the deer family, characterized by its massive size, long legs, and distinctive broad, palmate antlers found in males. They have a dark brown or black coat and a humped shoulder. Moose are primarily found in the boreal and mixed deciduous forests of North America, Europe, and Asia. They are solitary animals, often found near bodies of water, and are herbivores that feed on leaves, bark, twigs, and aquatic vegetation. Despite their size, moose are strong swimmers and can run up to 35 miles per hour. The moose population in North America is shrinking swiftly. This decrease has been correlated to the opening of roadways and landscapes into this animal's north range.   In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada and Alaska, the northern part of New England and New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale.    In 2014-2015, the North American moo

Map of Fox Species Distribution

Foxes are small to medium-sized members of the Canidae family, which also includes wolves, dogs, and other related animals. There are about 37 species of foxes distributed around the world, and they inhabit a wide range of environments, from forests and grasslands to deserts and urban areas. Below is the map of fox species distribution  created by Reddit user isaacSW Here are some of the most well-known fox species and their distribution: Red Fox ( Vulpes vulpes ): The red fox is one of the most widely distributed fox species and is found in North America, Europe, Asia, and parts of North Africa. They are adaptable and can live in a variety of habitats, including forests, grasslands, and urban areas. Arctic Fox ( Vulpes lagopus ): The Arctic fox is found in the Arctic regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. They have adaptations that help them survive in cold climates, such as a thick coat that changes color with the seasons. Gray Fox ( Urocyon cinereoargenteus ): The gray fox
