Sea Level Rise

General Web Resources

Sea Level Quiz: How much do you know? By NASA. http://climate.nasa.gov/SeaLevelQuiz/quiz.html. Test your knowledge of sea level and its relations to climate change and our quality of life.

Sea Level. Union of Concerned Scientists Global Warming Hot Map. http://www.climatehotmap.org/global-warming-effects/sea-level.html. Discusses how higher seas endanger coastal communities—where 40 percent of the world's population lives—and threaten groundwater supplies.

EPA Climate Change Kids’ Site. http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/kids/impacts/signs/index.html. The Environmental Protection Agency’s Kids’ Site provides information on climate change and climate change impacts for children. The site also includes educator resources (see bottom of the page), including tips for teaching climate change.

Coastal Consequences of Sea Level Rise. PBS Teachers professional development module. http://www.pbs.org/teachers/stem/professionaldevelopment/040/. The ocean’s surface is not level, and sea levels change in response to changes in chemistry and temperature. Sophisticated satellite measurements are required for scientists to document current sea level rise. This module explores the evidence for sea level rise related to global climate change and the consequences for humanity, especially coastal-dwelling populations. References national standards.
