Sea Change Part 1: In the Field

This video is the first of a three-video series from the Sea Change project. It features the field work of scientists from the US and Australia looking for evidence of sea level rise during the Pliocene era when Earth was (on average) about 2 to 3 degrees Celsius hotter than it is today.

Teaching Tips

Consider focusing on the sections about the scientists in Australia and skipping through the stock footage about current SLR.

Snapshots of climate change through geological records could be used to link this video piece. Educators could also have students research the Pliocene era and its relation to sea level rise - increases in CO2 and glacial melt.
