Global Warming Map by YNot1989 Global Warming Map by YNot1989
This, to my knowledge, is the only wikipedia type map of the world after a 100 meter rise in sea level. It is my first deviation, and if you have a TL or project that you think will benefit from it, I welcome you to use it or any part of it at you discretion.

The new sea levels were based off of: [link]

Things will look a bit different if this actually happens.  A dam across the strait of gibraltar could save all of the mediterranean and eastern Europe from being flooded, but that water will have to go somewhere else so other places will lose more land.

You know what interests me? An alternate history where this map always was Earth as long as human civilization can remember. Like the ice age never happened or was much less severe. That alone would alter ten million different variables, but some major sociopolitical ones that come to mind:

-England basically would have never existed, which changes colonialism in a million ways. Protestant Europe as a whole gets a much rawer deal than Spain, France, and Italy. Greater, longer-lasting, and more intense power for the Catholic Church, perhaps? Perhaps France would control most of North America without England to compete with, and would they end up colonizing Australia, India, etc. too?

-Africa actually looks the least affected: perhaps they could have fought off European control more successfully, given how fragmented and resource-poor this new Europe would be? Maybe Europe would be seen as the 'backwards' part of the world?

-Russia might never stretch as far East as it does now with that giant gulf in the way.

-Japan looks like it got a better deal than China and Korea. What that would imply I do not know. Maybe a weakened Chinese/Korean culture never colonizes Japan as fully and it maintains more of its indigenous cultures?

Cotton farming and slavery in the US was only viable in the South because of the climate and landscape. What happens when everything south of the Carolinas isn't there?

Major cities that would have never existed as we know them: London, Beijing, Shanghai, Kolkata, Mumbai, Seoul, Berlin, Buenos Aires, New York, Jakarta, Dhaka, Cairo, Baghdad...the mind boggles.

Now I really want to write something about this.

That doesn't really answer the question.  What ecosystems will the Arctic, the Outback, the Great Plains, the Amazon, the Sahara and all of Europe be?

Arctic will be more livable along the coasts than at present, and will probably see the spread of lichens and other simple organisms. The Outback and the Sahara will just increase desertification to their surrounding areas, the Amazon will be a reef, and the Great Plains will be in Dust Bowl II: The Reckoning.

Almost half of Antarctica and ALL of the Arctic would have to melt. This of course will happen 100 to 200 years from now. Global warming is a slow process. Yes people say that its speeding up, but what they mean is instead of 1000's of years its turned to 100's of years. On the plus side We will have more land because of the melting of Antarctica.

Amusingly, there were three scenarios in Railroad Tycoon 2 that dealt with rising sea levels - the Western Med (sealing off a fissure in Spain - explained why in-game), the Eastern American Seaboard, and Africa. The flooding was much more severe in-game than depicted here though (for instance, Lake Ontario extended further up the St Lawrence).

completely scientifically inaccurate, there is not near enough water in the ice caps to rise sea levels 100 meters.
