Sea Level: On the Rise
With the global temperature on the rise, the effects of climate change are starting to be seen. However, many people have a difficult time conceptualizing the long-term effects, such as sea levels rising. Given an easy and effective experiment, groups work together to determine how global warming leads to melting ice on the land and in the water and how this will affect ocean levels and erosion on land.
