Global Warming and Changing Sea Level part of Cutting Edge:Oceanography:Activities
In the first part of this activity, students think about their personal carbon emissions and driving habits. They reflect on what might be done to reduce our carbon emissions, as individuals and as a society as a whole. In the second part of the activity, students calculate how much sea level would rise if a range of ice melting scenarios occur. They then examine topographic maps of local coastlines to see how different regions would be affected under the range of scenarios.


Introduction to Oceanography part of Cutting Edge:Oceanography:Courses
This course covers geological, chemical, physical, and biological aspects of the Earth's ocean. Plate tectonics, physiography of ocean basins and continental margins, ocean sediment, atmosphere and ocean circulation, waves and tides, coasts, and marine ecology are also covered. The companion Oceanography Lab (OCEA 10L) is recommended for students needing a lab to transfer to a fourĀ­-year college/university. Field trips are required.
