Nasa forecasts how ice melt will impact on cities

Detailed research by Nasa looks into how different cities will be affected as sections of ice sheets melt.  Studies of the earth's spin and gravitational pull has allowed scientists to identify exactly how water will be redistributed globally.

Previous research has looked generally at the impact of ice melt on the earth; recognising how different levels of melting will affect coastal cities.  However, the melting process is much more complex and cities are more at risk when certain masses of ice melt.  For example, in London, the city is most at risk from melting of the north-western Greenland ice sheet.  This is due to the spin of the earth and the deflection of the water in a specific direction.

Check out the following report on the matter.  You can also look at the forecasting tool which is in a link in the article...
