California Academy of Sciences: Global Climate Change and Sea Level Rise

Do sea levels rise when ice melts? Does it matter whether the ice is on land or in the ocean?

Students design an experiment to find out. They collect data, graph their results, and interpret their findings. Along the way, they learn about density, displacement, and climate change.
