Test your knowledge of sea level rise and its effect on global populations.
In this activity, students will use sea-level rise data to create models and compare short-term trends to long-term trends. They will then determine whether sea-level rise is occurring based on the data.
This activity invites students to simulate and observe the different effects on sea level from melting sea-ice.
