Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- An effective video to introduce the the impact that predicted climate-driven sea-level rise, together with tectonic impacts, may have on the position of the Pacific Northwest coastline.
About the Science
- The video explains how geologic processes and global warming could combine to result in large increases in sea levels and subsequent destruction of the Pacific coastline.
- Comments from expert scientist: The video is professionally done and comprises well-designed animations in several places. The data presented is not only current but also very relatable to modern and future issues along the coast - beach erosion and nourishment, coastal infrastructures and habitations, recreation opportunities, maritime transport, etc.
About the Pedagogy
- More of a report than an entertaining video - talking head interspersed with video images and graphics.
- Good graphics and examples.
