Threshold Effect & Rapid Ice Cap melt?
Here appears to be a key answer: It's hard to say whether meters of ocean rising could occur in this century or subsequent centuries, but it's very important to do better science for this.

Do open discussion journals provide a service to the scientific community? http://kencaldeira.org http://mobile.nytimes.com/blogs/dotearth/2015/07/23/whiplash-warning-when-climate-science-is-publicized-before-peer-review-and-publication/ … @Revkin
And in conjunction with a virtual Harbin, such STEM virtual world modeling - historically and predictive-wise too - gets into very very complex virtual Earth building (especially with anticipating 8,000 languages, too) ...
See too both of these Harbin exploration blog posts ...
Jerdon’s Courser: Visit the Harbin Gate now in Google Earth, and walk down the road to Middletown, California, Sent my actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnographic book proposal "Naked Harbin" to Publisher this morning, Virtual Earth for STEM research will hopefully be Google made ... And building Virtual Harbin in a virtual Earth for STEM-centric research including ethnographic and anthropological research will be part of this, including especially for ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy, India and B.I.R.D.S. - Bharati Integrated Rural Development Society, Here's India World University and School, with much MIT OCW, Would love to visit BIRDS in a 3D interactive film-realistic Google virtual earth ... which could be used for education, free CC university degrees and organic farming development planning
Himalayan Quail (Ophrysia superciliosa): Just "walked" ~ 'arrowed' on my computer keyboard ~ down the Harbin road from the Harbin Gatehouse to the new Middletown Library, Google Earth - great - just updated toward interactive movie realism and as virtual Harbin ethnographic field site, See, too, this interesting Lego-virtual world development re the actual and the virtual, an important aspect of my Harbin ethnographic book manuscript ... Some field notes from walking down the Harbin Springs road from the Harbin gate in the newly updated Google Earth, Harbin field notes in this blog ... free, re Harbin field work, more research is needed to reiterate an academic cliche ... When will these Google Earth tiled photos become film realistic, live, 3D and interactive?, Just "flew" above ~ clicking on satellite view in Google Earth ~ Harbin Hot Springs ... Harbin HCC 40th Anniversary pamphlet

What a cool STEM-centric far-reaching Harbin virtual world and virtual earth this will become!
