Flooded! An Investigation of Sea-Level Rise in a Changing Climate
Gillette, Brandon; Hamilton, Cheri
Science Scope, v34 n7 p25-31 Mar 2011
Explore how melting ice sheets affect global sea levels. Sea-level rise (SLR) is a rise in the water level of the Earth's oceans. There are two major kinds of ice in the polar regions: sea ice and land ice. Land ice contributes to SLR and sea ice does not. This article explores the characteristics of sea ice and land ice and provides some hands-on activities to help clear up any misconceptions about melting ice. (Contains 9 figures and 6 resources.)
