Threats of Sea Level Rise: An Eco-Geopolitical Visual Analysis



Advisor: Wendy Luttrell


This eco-geopolitical research produces information about the sea
level rising, and the analyst explains and projects global effects, and further
problems and consequences of the phenomena in a five-minute-long video clip.

The focus is coastlines floods as a consequence of the sea level
rising produced by glaciers melting.  The floods will affect regions where
over a billion persons are living, mainly coastal cities.  Therefore, the sea level rising will produce
or ease gradual destruction and sudden catastrophes. Moreover, these
catastrophes will spur mass migration that might change the lives of a billion
persons by 2045.

          This project  applied the academic skills acquired studying
an individualized track of theoretical courses on International Relations,
different courses on International Security Studies, and The Political Ecology
of Social and Environmental Justice.  The final products are, in addition
to the video ( this thirty-four pages
white paper, the publication of a web place using SCALAR, the open source
platform provided by The Alliance for Networking Visual Culture, and it  includes the uploading of written material
and a link to the video made with digital visuals such as video captures from
internet, photos, and my own artistic production (  I applied my artistic and technological
skills to deliver a description and an explication in digital form under guidance
and advice of Professor Luttrell.  
Therefore, this video explains the destruction of productive
infrastructure, housing, natural habitats, and ecosystems by sea level rise. It
also explains the surge of mass migration with social, political, and economic
consequences at local, national and global levels. These catastrophes will
affect big cities around the world and will challenge local and national
governments. Thus, this project is a professional eco-geopolitical analysis
presented visually.
