Students learn tow important mechanisms of Sea Level Rise by watching three videos and complete related questions.
The questions of quiz are selected from MADE CLEAR Sea Level Rise Assessment Instrument: Draft Version 1-15-2014 (www.ClimateEdResearch.org)
The first mechanism is the melting of Earth’s land ice, most visibly represented by the melting of ice sheets and glaciers, which flows into the sea.
The second major contributor to sea level rise is the thermal expansion of water. As the temperature of seawater increases, expansion takes place and volume increases.
