Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- Norfolk, Virginia has a major base of the U.S. Navy, which takes climate change and sea level rise very seriously.
- See: Rear Admiral David Titley, Oceanographer and Navigator of the US Navy- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2yvky_xmwk&feature=related
About the Science
- This video offers a case study of a community where sea level rise is already an issue and a glimpse of the related social and infrastructure issues.
- Comments from expert scientist: It mentions both land-ice melt and thermal expansion of water as drivers of sea-level rise. Resource includes the role of local subsidence (Norfolk, VA is built on drained wetlands–easily compressed compared to bedrock).
About the Pedagogy
- This video offers viewers an example of how climate change impacts a community through sea level rise.
- Can be used to spark discussion and further research.
- A good complement to other CLEAN selected sea level rise resources.
