About the Science
- A series of graphs that show sea levels of the recent past and future predictions on changes in sea level.
- Comments from expert scientist: Resource needs more context to be useful, including attribution and locations. Sea level Rise Maps Gallery These maps represent what is known as “bathtub models” in which future global sea level rise is projected onto the present day elevation contours of a coastal region. These kinds of maps are useful only for coastal regions that are vertically stable. Many of the world’s coasts are subject to vertical change (subsidence, uplift, glacial isostatic rebound or collapse). In such cases these maps can be quite misleading.
About the Pedagogy
- Graphs can be downloaded and used individually or as a gallery. It is a visualization of data - how it is used is up to the teacher/learner.
- This resource engages students in using scientific data.
