How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted
We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

Animated maps show sea level rise in US
Climate central has released a series of multi layered interactive maps designed to illustrate how various levels of sea level rise may affect coastal communities all around United States. The group’s latest mapping tool, titled “Mapping Choices,” allows you to enter any zip code or U.S. city and compare — side-by-side — how that site would appear if pollution is allowed to continue “unchecked” versus a scenario in which pollution is heavily reduced. Majority of the scientists believe that sea level will continue to rise due to melting of the global ice caps. The maps also show what percentage of each community’s current homes and residents would be underwater at each stage of sea-level rise. The most striking numbers come from Old Orchard Beach, where 27.7 percent of homes and 13.1 percent of the population will fall into the Atlantic at the highest predicted levels. South Portland would see 9 percent of its current homes and 6.8 percent of its residents underwater at the highest sea-level rise estimate, by comparison.

Sea Level Rise Projections until 2100, a nonlinear response?
Past sea level rise is not captured by models yet, in particular the response from ice sheets in Antarctica due to global warming. Projections therefore can often be regarded to potentially underestimate future sea level rise. For example, Overpeck et al. (2006), and Hansen (2007) suggest possibilities which could eventually lead to a nonlinear response from ice sheets - accelerating the current observed sea level rise. Projections assessed by the US National Research Council (2010, pages 243-250), including Overpeck et al. 2006 http://books.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=12782&page=243 James Hansen on Sea Level Rise (2007) http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/2/2/024002 Sea level in the 5th IPCC report (Rahmstorf, 2013) http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2013/10/sea-level-in-the-5th-ipcc-report/ IPCC AR 2013 sea level rise discussion http://www.climatechange2013.org/images/uploads/WGIAR5_WGI-12Doc2b_FinalDraft_Chapter13.pdf Sea level rise map 6 meters NASA https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:6m_Sea_Level_Rise.jpg Music: The Kyoto Connection - The Way Of Waking Up (feat.

Rotterdam port closes flood barrier as sea level rises
SHOTLIST 1. Various of Rotterdam port, showing boats in dock and also boats moving 2. Various interiors of the main control room for the Rotterdam Port Authority 3. Various close-ups of the video display screen showing all areas of the port, including the two, white, arch-shaped flood barriers 4. Various of port officials 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tie Schellekens, Rotterdam Port Authority Spokesman: "Ten years ago we opened the flood barrier to protect the city from high water. And yesterday was for the first time that the risk was that high that the computer triggered the doors to close. So there was not a storm or something, it was a bit windy, we caught 80 metres per second. That's something usual in autumn. But the combination of northern western wind with the high water, that was something completely different. It affected the water that much that it had a height of three metres above sea level." 6. Control room 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tie Schellekens, Rotterdam Port Authority Spokesman: "No it was not dangerous for Rotterdam but without the flood barrier, there was certain parts of Rotterdam that could have had wet feet, and that's not something we like to have, so that's why we opened the flood barrier 10 years ago and yet we had to use them." 8. Various high wides of Rotterdam port STORYLINE: A powerful storm in the North Sea triggered tidal surges and violent winds that forced Britain and the Netherlands to activate flood defences. In the Netherlands, the Rotterdam Port Authority closed the port's flood barrier on Thursday night for the first time in its 10-year history, as sea levels off the Dutch coast rose by 3 metres. The closure of the two huge barrier gates was activated by a computer programme at around 2330 local time (22:30 GMT) on Thursday night, sealing off a 40-kilometre stretch of Europe's biggest port and closing the entrance of the River Rhine to all shipping. Rotterdam Port Authority Spokesman Tie Schellekens said it was an unusual combination of weather and tidal conditions which triggered the barrier closure. "It was a bit windy, we caught 80 metres per second. That's something usual in autumn. But the combination of northern western wind with the high water, that was something completely different. It affected the water that much that it had a height of three metres above sea level," he said. The Netherlands is particularly susceptible to flooding, as large areas of the country are reclaimed land which lies below sea level. But Schellekens added the situation was not especially serious for Rotterdam. "But without the flood barrier, there was certain parts of Rotterdam that could have had wet feet."

If it floods 80 centimetres (31.5 inches), it will be complicated for us." 11. Wide of harbour and Malecon seawall STORYLINE: Cuban scientists calculate that median sea levels around the Caribbean nation will rise more than 30 inches (76.2 centimetres) by the end of the century due to global climate change, official media said on Friday. They predict the sea will rise 10.6 inches (27 centimetres) by 2050, and 33.5 inches (85 centimetres) by 2100, Abel Centella, scientific director of the country's Meteorological Institute, was quoted by Communist Party daily Granma as saying. There were no details of what preparations the island is undertaking, but Granma said scientists are closely monitoring sea levels. A government scientist warned of the need to protect environments that can mitigate the effects of sea encroachment. Those fishing at the Havana Harbour on Friday were also concerned by the prediction saying that if the sea levels rise by 80 centimetres (31.5 inches) it would be "tragic" for the local economy. International scientific studies have projected sea levels will rise between 30 inches ((76.2 centimetres) and 75 inches (190 centimetres) by the end of the century, fed by melting glaciers and ice caps. The rise will not be same worldwide due to currents, winds and other factors.

Global vs Local Sea Level
Rising global sea level is one of the most commonly cited consequences of climate change, but it’s often unclear how it might affect people living on the coasts. A rise in global sea level occurs due to the warming of the ocean and the addition of fresh water into the ocean basins from melting ice on land. Local sea level, known as relative sea level change, is affected by global sea level fluctuations, changes in land elevation, winds, and ocean circulation.

Climate experts are warning that rising global temperatures pose a threat to the grapes that are gro
HEADLINE: Global warming could give wine lovers sour grapes CAPTION: Some experts in italy warn that global warming could wipe out their lucrative wine industry. (June 2) [Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] The Poggio Capponi Vineyards stretch over 500 hectares of rolling Tuscan countryside. For centuries these vineyards have been producing the grapes that make some of the best red wine in the world, Chianti. The Poggio Capponi vineyards now produce about 200,000 bottles of top quality wine every year. STAND-UP BRIDGE Making wine has been a way of life for centuries here in the Chianti region of Italy….but now climate experts are warning that rising global temperatures will ruin the grapes. Some even say in the future Chianti will no longer be made in Italy but will be made in Scandinavia. SHOTS OF FLORENCE, SHOTS OF UNIVERSITY An Agronomist from the University of Florence recently published a study linking the effects of global warming to wine production. He found that increasingly high temperatures and intense rains are likely to threaten the quality of Tuscan wines. SOUNDBITE ORLANDI Soundbite Professor Simone Orlandini, Agronomist, University of Florence, in English "But the risk in the future is that the temperature will be too high, so we will have a negative effect on the quality of wine." SHOTS OF ARTICLE IN WINE QUARTERLY Orlandini says that soon farmers will be growing olive trees in the alps and have vineyards in Scandinavia. SHOTS OF WINE BAR IN FLORENCE But Tuscans do not believe global warming is going to affect their wines. At the Fiaschetteria Nuvoli -- a wine bar in Florence, the Nuvoli family has been serving up red wine for years and their customers say they are not going to worry about global warming. UPSOUND VOX POP 26. Vox pop wine drinker Domenico Rossa, translated from Italian "they say a lot of things, but I think things will stay the way there are. Recently they were saying we would have a terrible drought and look now we have three days of heavy rain. I really wouldn't worry too much about it." SHOTS OF VINEYARDS AND GRAPES But wine growers are concerned about climatic conditions and watch very carefully over their vineyards hoping for the right combination of heat and rain to get just the right grape.

Predicting Floods - Global Flood Monitoring System by NASA
In the pantheon of natural disasters, floods are among the worst. By any metric—from financial ruin to human toll—floods rank alongside earthquakes, hurricanes, and tsunamis. In fact, the most deadly disaster of the 20th century was the China floods of 1931, which may have resulted in more than a million deaths. Predicting floods is notoriously tricky. They depend on a complex mixture of rainfall, soil moisture, the recent history of precipitation, and much more. Snowmelt and storm surges can also contribute to unexpected flooding. Thanks to NASA, however, the predictions are improving. A computer tool known as the Global Flood Monitoring System, or “GFMS,” which maps flood conditions worldwide, is now available online. Users anywhere in the world can use the system to determine when flood water might engulf their communities. “On our global interactive map, you can zoom into a location of interest to see whether the water is at flood stage, receding, or rising,” explains the University of Maryland’s Robert Adler, who developed the system with colleague Huan Wu. “You can also look around to see whether there is a rain event upstream, whether the rain is over, and how the water is moving downstream.” GFMS works 24/7, even when there is cloud cover or other interference. “At times, our system might be the only way people can get information,” says Adler. Here’s how it works. GFMS relies on precipitation data from NASA’s Earth observing satellites. Originally, the system relied on the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite. Earlier this year, GFMS transitioned to the new Global Precipitation Measurement satellite, or “GPM.” Rainfall data from GPM is combined with a land surface model that incorporates vegetation cover, soil type, and terrain to determine how much water is soaking in--and how much is feeding the streamflow. Users can view statistics for rainfall, streamflow, water depth, and flooding every 3 hours at each 12 km gridpoint on a global map. Forecasts for these parameters go out to 5 days. Users can also zoom in further to see inundation maps (areas estimated to be covered with water) as fine as 1 km resolution. Organizations like the Red Cross and the UN World Food Program are already using GFMS before, during, and after floods when ground information is lacking – which is often the case. “They use it to figure out when and where a flood has occurred and to estimate how big it is. They use that information in tandem with population maps to target relief efforts.” Adler is already looking forward to major improvements to the system, courtesy of the new GPM satellite. “Advances by GPM will allow us to estimate floods and landslides across the globe more accurately. Also, GPM’s global coverage, as compared to TRMM’s tropical latitude focus, will allow more accurate [forecasts] at middle and high latitudes.” Adler plans to work with international groups like the Global Flood Partnership to help spread the word. More information about the system is available at http://flood.umd.edu/

Scorched Earth in 2100: Interactive Nasa map reveals how climate change will cause temperatures Rise
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1N85MiTQ-N0gsI3XBCCYbw?sub_confirmation=1. Scorched Earth in 2100: Interactive Nasa map reveals how climate change will cause temperatures to soar in your city Nasa has released 11 terabytes of data predicting temperature and rainfall It allows scientists to predict climate change for individual towns and cities A map released by Nasa shows large areas in July 2100 will exceed 45°C. It looks like the world could be a much hotter place by the end of the century. New data released by Nasa scientists is revealing how temperature and rainfall patterns around the world may change by the year 2100. Using climate change predictions based on increasing levels of carbon dioxide, the data reveals what may happen to the climate in individual towns and cities. Much of the data is still in raw form for now to allow scientists to run models on a daily timescale. However, a map of the world released by Nasa, which shows the predicted temperature for July 2100, provides some clues for what the world may look like. Ellen Stofan, chief scientist at Nasa, said: 'Nasa is in the business of taking what we've learned about our planet from space and creating new products that help us all safeguard our future. 'With this new global dataset, people around the world have a valuable new tool to use in planning how to cope with a warming planet.' The new dataset is the latest product from Nasa's Earth Exchange (NEX), a big-data research platform within the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Centre its Ames Research Center in California. The data shows projected changes worldwide in response to rising carbon dioxide levels and can be viewed on a daily timescale for individual towns and cities. Unlike other climate prediction maps, which tend to show how global temperatures will differ from a pre-industrial average or current levels, the data gives predicted values. Nasa says the data will help scientists and planners better understand the risks facing the world due to climate change. Glaciers in the Everest region of the Himalayas could be almost completely eradicated by 2100 due to greenhouse gas emissions, scientists have warned. Models show that a decrease of 99 per cent by the end of the century is likely if emissions continue to rise, and even 70 per cent is possible if emissions are reduced. The study paints a grim picture of the impact of climate change on the world's highest peak. The research was carried out by scientists from Nepal, the Netherlands and France. They studied weather patterns in the atmosphere and then created a model of conditions on Everest to determine the future impact of rising temperatures on its glaciers. Increased temperatures will not only increase the rates of snow and ice melt, but can also result in a change of precipitation from snow to rain at critical elevations, where glaciers are concentrated. Together, these act to reduce glacier growth and increase melting in the area. Hundreds of millions of people rely upon the fresh water that is provided every summer from rivers that are fed by the Himalayan glaciers.

Climate Change: Sea Levels to Rise Several Meters by 2100?
Back in 1988, NASA scientist Dr. James Hansen put global warming on the map with his testimony to Congress that, "“It is time to stop waffling so much and say that the evidence is pretty strong that the greenhouse effect is here.” At the time, he was far ahead of his colleagues, and policymakers failed to take him seriously enough to prevent today's climate crisis. More than 25 years later, Dr. Hansen and colleagues have published an alarming report warning that even if we hit the international targets for temperature increases--which we're not even on track to do--we risk catastrophic changes to the climate that include runaway sea level rise and massive storms in a very short period of time.

240 million years ago to 250 million years in the future
This animation shows the plate tectonic evolution of the Earth from the time of Pangea, 240 million years ago, to the formation of Pangea Proxima, 250 million years in the future. The animation starts with the modern world then winds it way back to 240 million years ago (Triassic). The animation then reverses direction, allowing us to see how Pangea rifted apart to form the modern continents and ocean basins. When the animation arrives back at the present-day, it continues for another 250 million years until the formation of the next Pangea, "Pangea Proxima". This question often come up. " Why dont you show East Africa rifting away from the rest of Africa?". Here's why: - Often, oceans open around a three-armed rift system called a “triple junction”. Only two arms of a triple junction open to form ocean basins. . In the case of East Africa, the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden are the two successful rifts. The East African rift sytem, starting at the Afar Triangle, in Ethiopiais an aulacogen or “failed arm” of a triple junction The East African rift system is a failed rift, much like the Benue Trough in the South Atlantic or the Labrador Sea in the North Atlantic. - Let’s step back and ask the question, “What caused the rifting of the Red Sea , Gulf of Aden and East Africa in the first place? Though the Afar hotspot certainly helped to weaken the lithosphere, The driving force that caused the rifting was the subduction (beneath Eurasia , i.e., Iran) of oceanic crust attached to the northern margin of Arabia. (There was ocean an ocean between Arabian and Iran.) This subducting slab “pulled” Arabia northward tearing it away from Africa. This subduction zone has been completely destroyed by the collision of Arabia and Eurasia (Zagros Mountains). Consequently, there is no longer any “plate tectonic forces” acting on the African rifts and they will not continue to open. - Also, if we look at the plate tectonic neighborhood of East Africa, we see that the dominant motion of plates in the western Indian Ocean is N-S, rather than E-W . In fact, a new subduction zone is just beginning in the central Indian Ocean (a zone of diffuse earthquakes ~ 5-10 S) that will continue to pull Australia and Antarctica northward towards Asia. In other words, there is no room for East Africa to expand towards the east. Rather the east coast of Madagascar will become a strike-slip margin accommodating the continued, northward movement of the Australian-Antarctic plate. I hope this explanation is helpful. Of course all of this is scientific speculation, we will have to wait and see what happens, but this is my projection based on my understanding of the forces that drive plate motions and the history of past plate motions. Remember: “The past reveals patterns; Patterns inform process; Process permits prediction.” Notice how the areas of green (land), brown (mountains), dark blue (deep sea), and light blue (shallow seas on continents), changes throughout time. These changes are the result of mountain-building, erosion, and the rise and fall of sea level throughout time. The white patches near the pole are the expanding and contracting polar icecaps.

FWOO (Fresh Water Options Optimization method) .
FWOO (Fresh Water Options Optimization method) - Potential for local solutions to optimize fresh water supply under increasing water stress. Climate change and sea level rise may pose problems for the sustainable exploitation of fresh groundwater for agriculture. Deltares is exploring solutions to sustain the fresh water supply in a changing climate and to increase the self-reliance of farmers. Different innovative solutions that increase the local fresh water supply in economic vulnerable regions under increasing water stress (droughts, salinization) were studied and tested in the field (Go-Fresh project, Knowledge for Climate program). For up scaling purposes of these local solutions, this knowledge has been incorporated in a toolbox called the Fresh Water Options Optimization (FWOO). The basis for the FWOO consists of a method to produce maps that pinpoint where conditions are less or more suitable for various kinds of local fresh water solutions that secure the water supply of farmers and decrease their vulnerability to periods of drought. Solutions like climate adaptive drainage and aquifer storage and recovery are considered innovations that strengthen regional agricultural economy and reduce water stress due to climate change. Furthermore, the FWOO hands a method to asses other physical factors that determine the success and quantitative potential of local solutions, like interference between solutions, the interaction with surface water quality, the current or future water management strategy and seasonal aspects. In this film Perry de Louw and Marco Hoogvliet from Deltares explain the goal and results of the FWOO-project (Climate for Knowledge). The technique of one of the freshwater solutions called ‘drains2buffer’ is demonstrated at an agricultural site in the Southwestern Delta of the Netherlands (Go-Fresh). In this low-lying area, saline groundwater is found within 2 meter below surface level and freshwater is limited to very thin rainwater lenses. Drains2buffer is a regulating innovative drainage system to increase this rainwater lens to avoid the capillary rise of saline groundwater reaching the root zone. Esmeé Vingerhoed from water board Hollands Noorderkwartier explains in the film how FWOO can be used to stimulate farmers to invest in local freshwater solutions to increase their own freshwater availability. In a recently started Climate Kic project ‘FWOO’, the potential for local solutions to optimize fresh water supply in European regions under increasing water stress is explored. The FWOO-method will be applied in a pilot-area in the Alicante-region (Spain).

Our scorched Earth in 2100: Nasa maps reveal how climate change will cause temperatures to soar
Our scorched Earth in 2100: Nasa maps reveal how climate change will cause temperatures to soar www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3125113/Earth-2100-Nasa-maps-reveal-world-need-adapt-rising-temperatures-caused-climate-change.html ~ It looks like the world could be a much hotter place by the end of the century. New data released by Nasa scientists is revealing how temperature and rainfall patterns around the world may change by the year 2100. Using climate change predictions based on increasing levels of carbon dioxide, the data reveals what may happen to the climate in individual towns and cities. Much of the data is still in raw form for now to allow scientists to run models on a daily timescale. However, a map of the world released by Nasa, which shows the predicted temperature for July 2100, provides some clues for what the world may look like. By that time, carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere will have reached 935 parts per million, meaning the gas comprises nearly 0.1 per cent of the atmosphere. Earlier this year carbon dioxide levels reached 400 parts per million. If by the end of the century carbon dioxide in the atmosphere more than doubles, much of Africa, South America and India will endure average daily maximum temperatures of more than 45°C.

[Geography] Climate Change
Climate change affects all regions around the world. Polar ice shields are melting and the sea is rising. In some regions extreme weather events and rainfall are becoming more common while others are experiencing more extreme heat waves and droughts. These impacts are expected to intensify in the coming decades. When water warms up it expands. At the same time global warming causes polar ice sheets and glaciers to melt. The combination of these changes is causing sea levels to rise, resulting in flooding and erosion of coastal and low lying areas. Heavy rain and other extreme weather events are becoming more frequent. This can lead to floods and decreasing water quality, but also decreasing availability of water resources in some regions. Many poor developing countries are among the most affected. People living there often depend heavily on their natural environment and they have the least resources to cope with the changing climate. Climate change is already having an impact on health: There has been an increase in the number of heat-related deaths in some regions and a decrease in cold-related deaths in others. We are already seeing changes in the distribution of some water-borne illnesses and disease vectors. Damage to property and infrastructure and to human health imposes heavy costs on society and the economy. Between 1980 and 2011 floods affected more than 5.5 million people and caused direct economic losses of more than €90 billion. Sectors that rely strongly on certain temperatures and precipitation levels such as agriculture, forestry, energy and tourism are particularly affected. Climate change is happening so fast that many plants and animal species are struggling to cope. Many terrestrial, freshwater and marine species have already moved to new locations. Some plant and animal species will be at increased risk of extinction if global average temperatures continue to rise unchecked.

Tutorial 13 - Data-enabled groundwater modeling (China).
This video illustrates the use of IGW to create a Google Maps-based, “one-click” data-enabled model in China. Google Maps is used to zoom and pan to the area to be modeled, and the user selects and draws a box in the area of interest. In one click, the box drawn in the GIS environment is converted to a model in the IGW environment. Since this model is for China, the only existing dataset that can be used for the model is the DEM (which defines the topography). All other parameters-such as the hydraulic conductivity of the model area, the aquifer’s bottom elevation, and the recharge rate-are assumed to be constant and are assigned by the user. The model is discretized and run to show the hydraulic head contours and flow directions. The model results are also plotted in cross-section view. The model created here is a preliminary model that can be improved upon by the user with additional data. The steps to create the model are outlined briefly: (1) In the Google Map interface, enter ‘Chengdu, China’ in the search bar. A flag will appear in the Google Map display indicating the location of this city. (2) Increase the “zoom level” to 8 to focus the display to Chengdu. Adjust the “zoom” level until the appropriate map area is displayed for use in an IGW model. (3) When the area of interest is centered and completely contained within the display, click on the ‘Capture GE map’ icon to create a map for IGW. The user may choose from the available UTM coordinate grids available for China. • Enter a ‘3’ in the input box of the prompt that appears to use the 3 degree UTM zone rather than the 6 degree. • Additionally, an appropriate projection system is suggested, although the user may import a system of their choice. Answer ‘Yes’ to the prompt to apply the suggest projection system, and use the original map resolution. (4) The map will be automatically opened in the GIS layer explorer. Click on the ‘Draw a rectangle for IGW’ icon and draw a rectangle to define the modeling extent to be used in the IGW main window. (5) Click on the ‘Extract/Import model features from GIS to IGW’ icon and the IGW main window appears with an “import data” window. Click ‘Ok’ to import the rectangle into IGW with the map layer as the model basemap. (6) Select the domain polygon and edit its properties in Attributes Explorer • In the ‘Flow Properties’ tab, check ‘Conductivity’, and assign a constant value of 15m/day. • In the ‘Elevatoins’ tab, check ‘Top Elevation’, and select ‘Raster’ and ensure that ‘DEM from IGW server’ is selected. Check ‘Bottom Elevation…’, and enter a constant bottom aquifer elevation of 310m • In the ‘Head dependent flux’ sub-tab, check ‘One-way head-dependent’ flux, and select ‘Top Elevation’ as the drain elevation. In the ‘Prescribed flux’ sub-tab, check ‘Recharge’ and input a constant recharge of 10 cm/year across the model domain. (7) Increase the model grid resolution and discretize the model. (8) Run the model, and edit the velocity vectors in the display. Open the ‘Velocity Draw Option’ window and increase the grid separation between displayed velocity vectors. Also, ensure that the ‘Seep Area’ box is checked. Note the easily discernable head contours and flow directions. Also note that the grid cells exhibiting seepage to the land surface are heighted in blue. (9) Draw a cross-section through the center of the model, and note the gradual decrease in hydraulic head from the northwest to the southeast as shown in the ‘Profiles Display’ window • Check the ‘Top Elevation’ box to display the land surface profile alone the cross-section. Note the abrupt rise and fall of land surface, which was visible in the Google Earth display seen earlier in this example. - Hydrosimulatics Inc.

All of the core gameplay mechanics from Red Orchestra 2 are present, such as the cover system and bullet drop. Rising Storm brings in a whole new arsenal of weapons, that relate to the American and Japanese weaponry used in the Pacific Theater, such as the M1 Garand and the Type 38 rifle. Gameplay has been described by Tripwire as asymmetrical, due to the Japanese having inferior weaponry to the Americans to maintain historical accuracy. To balance the teams out, the Japanese are given the Knee Mortar, along with the ability to plant grenades as booby traps, and being able to launch Banzai charges at the Americans, which in turn deals suppression onto the Americans while the Japanese suffer less from suppression themselves. The Americans are also given the M2 flamethrower to flush the Japanese out of strongly fortified positions. They also benefit from a wide range of automatic firearms such as the M1918 BAR and the M1919 Browning. The game still features the Squad Leader who uses a sub-machine gun (Americans have the M1A1 and the Japanese the type 100) Rising Storm features four playable factions, including the United States Marine Corps, the U.S. Army, the Imperial Japanese Army, and the Special Naval Landing Force. The game takes the player around the Pacific with maps varying from the Battle of Peleliu, with a desert-island type environment, to the Battle of Saipan at Charan Kanoa, an urban environment, to the Battle of Iwo Jima and the like. ========================================== Remember to LIKE and FOLLOW me on my social media websites: ■ Twitch: http://twitch.tv/entak ■ Twitter: https://twitter.com/Sihtegaming ■ Facebook: http://facebook.com/TheSihteGaming ========================================== Gaming Hardware: i7-3770K OC @ 4.2GHz MSI Twin Frozr GTX 980 16GB GSkill RAM Thermaltake 850w PSU

Territory of FINLAND is increasing due to the post-glacial rebound
Finland is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world – it has unique natural resources and awesome places of interest, so tourists always find fun things to do in this country. Generally speaking, learning about different countries of the world is always fun, especially if the facts are truly amazing. So did you know that Finland is a unique country, which is still increasing in size? How is that possible? Scientists call this phenomenon the post-glacial rebound. Annually the territory of this country is increasing by at least ~2.7 sq mi, as over the past years the land was relieved from massive glacier, which was pushing down on this country since the Ice Age. So now Finland may be called a country, which is rising from the sea. If you find this fact fascinating, then you should check out our full presentation of fun Finnish facts here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cuO6A20cx8 In our interactive video presentation we were able to briefly explain such facts: - true love to new types of sports and unusual contests; - unique tourist destinations – glass igloo hotel & snow restaurant; - extremely effective education system for Finnish children; - why this country is known as a land of lakes and midnight sun? - and many more.

Pumped Dry: Dry wells, sinking ground in Calf.
California residents struggle as groundwater levels drop below the reach of their wells. In places around the world, supplies of groundwater are rapidly vanishing. As aquifers decline and wells begin to go dry, people are being forced to confront a growing crisis. Much of the planet relies on groundwater. And in places around the world – from the United States to Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America – so much water is pumped from the ground that aquifers are being rapidly depleted and wells are going dry.

Cities Skylines - Electricity and Water Services Guide
Cities Skylines Electricity and Water Services Guide. Cities: Skylines is a city-building game currently in development by the Finnish game developer Colossal Order and to be published and released by Paradox Interactive on March 10, 2015 for Windows, OS X and Linux. Cities: Skylines focuses on city-building simulation through urban planning. Players control zoning, road placement, taxation, public services, and public transportation of an area. Gameplay is open-ended, touted as "endless sandbox gameplay across massive maps.” Player-determined civic policies can affect the development of the entire city or individual districts thereof. Roads can be built straight or free-form and the grid used for zoning adapts to road shape; cities need not follow a grid plan. Roads of varying widths (up to major freeways) accommodate different traffic volumes, and variant road types (for example roads lined with trees) offer reduced noise pollution or increased property values in the surrounding area at an increased cost to the player. Modding, via the addition of user-generated content such as buildings or vehicles, is to be supported in Skylines; the creation of an active content-generating community is an explicit design goal. This content will be available for download from the Steam Workshop. ★Buy Cities Skylines: https://www.g2a.com/r/get-cities-skylines (* I get a little commission, this doesn't increase the price of the game.

Cities: Skylines Gameplay Review
I'm playing Cities: Skylines, a city building simulation by Colossal Order and Paradox Interactive. The game features nine large maps to build upon; reaching population objectives open new areas in each map to expand into and unlocks new items. Map and asset editors are available to expand the content, and Cities: Skylines relies on Steam workshop for sharing maps and mods. The interface is fairly typical, offering icons for building-specific needs and map overlays for more detailed information. Unlike other city builders, zoning residential, commercial, and industrial areas is free, as the cost is incurred when placing roads, which automatically have areas to either side ready to be designated. It is easy to upgrade roads to larger or more quiet versions (noise pollution negatively affects residences), and raising road elevation is done using the page-up and page-down buttons, allowing for multi-level highway systems. Public transportation, power plants, water pumps and drains, garbage collection, health care (including cemeteries), fire protection, police, and education must all be managed. Areas of town can be designated as a special district, where unique laws and building specializations (taking advantage of natural resources such as timber or minerals) can be de defined. A sophisticated (and completely offline, by the way) simulation of citizens, their vehicles, their homes, and places of business runs under the hood, producing a very convincing reproduction of a town. Cities: Skylines is an extremely satisfying city builder that adds some notable unique improvements to the genre.

Simulation to test readiness for major flooding in London

Computer graphic showing water flowing across map 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Andrew Batchelor, UK Environment Agency "If a surge of that magnitude was to strike, they (the scientists) have portrayed that the water would be going over the tops of the defences, the river walls along the embankment, so the water would be going over the top. That is obviously extreme, and the defences are built to an extremely high standard to start with. So I''d hate people to go away running scared." 7. Graphic showing flood water racing into Thamesmeade district 8. Pan from Thamesmeade housing estate to river 9. Various of riverside houses in Thamesmeade 10. Colin Brownhill looks out over river 11. SOUNDBITE (English) Colin Brownhill, local resident "If they''re saying it''s going to get flooded where I''m living, it''s going to put a lot of things at risk." 12. Wide of Thames flood barrier with Millennium Dome and Canary Wharf in background STORYLINE: It was the perfect storm - the biggest Britain has ever experienced - but fortunately it was just a computer simulation. British scientists unveiled sophisticated new storm forecasting techniques on Wednesday - and simulated massive flooding in London. They were testing what would happen if a seven-metre surge struck the capital, overwhelming the flood barrier in the River Thames. The computer model highlighted the district of Thamesmeade in east London, where such an event would cause massive flooding. But the scientists emphasised that they were focusing on a worst-case scenario - something that was likely to hit London just once every thousand years. The capital''s flood defences are perfectly adequate for the foreseeable future, they concluded. Their research is aimed at improving flood forecasting so that authorities have more time to evacuate people at risk. keyword-flood keyword-science You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/789ad06ec7e641ecf3ce69644d6154c1 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

Glaciers melting at alarming rate according to experts who blame global warming
Peru's glaciers have lost more than one-fifth of their mass in just three decades, which means putting at risk an estimated 30 million people along the country's Pacific coastal desert who depend on the glaciers for their survival. Locals use the glacial runoff to hydropower and to irrigate crops, and if this source is taken away, long-term electricity and food security in the region could be in trouble. As more intense solar radiation accelerates glacial melt on precipitous slopes, their pastures and croplands are drying up. Droughts and cold snaps become more prolonged, heavy night frosts more common, snow and hailstorms more intense. The temperature in the high Andes has already increased twice as much as the global average since 1951 by 1.75 degrees Celsius (3.15 degrees Fahrenheit), causing the glaciers to melt away. The Pastoruri glacier has retreated some 570 meters since 1980, according to Alejo Cochachi, member of the glaciology unit of Peru's national water authority. Peru is currently hosting the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP20, which began on Monday. Delegates from more than 190 countries are working to reach a new worldwide deal to limit greenhouse gas emissions and keep global warming from causing irreversible damage.
