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.

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

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
