Test your knowledge of sea level rise and its effect on global populations.
Students analyze the relationship between sea surface topography and ocean surface currents by graphing sea height differences using data collected from NASA's TOPEX/Poseidon mission.
This learning activity uses data acquired by the TOPEX/Poseidon altimeter, a joint project of NASA and the French Space Agency, to investigate the relationship between the topography of a sea-floor feature and the topography of the overlying sea surface.
This activity is one of a series in the collection, The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change activities.
This activity invites students to model and observe the effect of melting ice sheets (from land) on sea level and the difference between the effect of melting sea-ice to that of melting land ice on sea level.
