The place Mountains Rise From Oceans

an elevation heat map of Iceland showing OceanJut rankings

Final 12 months PeakJut invented the Jut Rating with a purpose to rank mountains based mostly on how sharply they rise above their environment. Now they’ve launched a brand new OceanJut rating – a novel technique of measuring the place land most dramatically rises from the ocean around the globe.

The OceanJut interactive map lets you see how shortly and dramatically the land rises from the ocean throughout the globe. In different phrases the map can assist you discover essentially the most spectacular mountain-meets-ocean views on the planet. The OceanJut rankings work in the identical means as PeakJut scores. A location’s rating is decided not simply by elevation, however by how steeply it rises from sea-level. 

Exploring the coastlines which I am most accustomed to, in southern England, I can attest that OceanJut works nicely in figuring out the Seven Sisters & the Isle of Wight’s Undercliff as areas the place the land rises dramatically from the ocean (relative to the remainder of southern England). Conversely the dearth of any important OceanJut scores in Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk is one cause why these English counties are so fearful about rising sea-levels.

I do not know which areas around the globe have the best OceanJut scores. Fjords clearly rating very extremely on the OceanJut algorithm. For instance Milford Sound in New Zealand scores a powerful 1317m on the OceanJut rankings. Plenty of the Norwegian shoreline of Norway additionally scores very extremely on the OceanJut scale, largely due to its many fjords.
