Assessing Local Sea Level Rise part of Curriculum for the Bioregion:Activities
Students will read primary scientific literature, work collaboratively, think critically, and utilize GIS as a tool to visualize and quantify spatial and temporal changes in hydrological systems. This workshop integrates (1) a review and discussion of literature on global climate change and sea level rise, (2) collaborative work to adopt a model for eustatic sea level rise, and (3) the use of GIS as a tool to assess the local impacts of this model. The activity can be also be done using topographic maps instead of GIS.
