So if the Greenland ice sheath goes away and the sea level rises 23 ft. globally as a result... I realize these are arbitrary figures... in this scenario... how much of the coast of NC disappears and how far inland? Would Raleigh for instance, 120 miles in... become wetlands or beachfront property or neither? All speculative I realize, but I'm interested, and interested in the method used to calculate these things. Thanks.

@blueveinedthrobber,
This is a storm surge map for a similar area, but maybe it'll give you some idea.

@blueveinedthrobber,
I like this one. Looks like the Bahamas are toast.
