Learn more about the different causes of sea level change and the scientific background of observations and projecting sea level. Find out about the history of measuring sea level and how state-of-the-art physical climate models predict sea level change into the future.
Helping students build their understanding of Earth's spheres and how they are connected is difficult. Review the graphics below to help identify the parts of the Earth System and the processes that connect them at the local, regional, and global scales.
NASA Worldview is a free online visualization tool that is a great launchpad for learners who are new (or
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 activity is one of a series in the collection, The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change activities.
This activity invites students to simulate and observe the different effects on sea level from melting sea-ice.
