On Tuesday, November 19, NOAA sea level rise expert William Sweet answered questions in a Climate.gov tweet chat about sea level rise and U.S. high-tide flooding.

Southern Florida experienced its highest tides of the year over the last couple of months leading to coastal flooding. 

In this short but effective demonstration/experiment, students investigate how thermal expansion of water might affect sea level.

This is a short experiment to demonstrate the concept of thermal expansion of water when heated, as an analogy to thermal expansion of oceans due to global warming.

This activity allows students to demonstrate the thermal expansion of water for themselves using water bottles and straws. The discussion allows them to explore the connection between this concept and sea level rise due to climate change.

This very short video introduces the concept of sea level rise and ties it back to global warming. The video is brief, basic, and clear. It can be used for a quick introduction, but nothing deeper than that.
