Impacts of sea level rise on Seattle, WA

Poster

This is a web-formatted version of my final project for GEO132. See above for the poster version.

Introduction

Among the many impacts of global warming, only sea-level rise physically displaces people and their communities. Understanding the impacts of rising oceans is especially important since so many densely populated urban areas exist in coastal regions. I hope to gain a better understanding of these impacts through the use of a geographic information system.

Research questions:

  • How much land will different amounts of sea-level rise displace in an urban area?
  • How does this coverage disproportionately affect different building zones (e.g. residential, commercial, industrial)?

Sean Paul vs. Chris Brown – Kiss Kiss It Up

While listening to Sean Paul’s new album Imperial Blaze I found a few good sounding tracks, especially “Press It Up.”  By chance, this song was released as the album’s second single a couple weeks ago, and an instrumental version was included with the CDM.  While fooling around in Traktor, I found it mixes quite naturally with Chris Brown’s “Kiss Kiss.”  My second mashup, “Kiss Kiss It Up” was born.
