Climate Change & Sea-Level Rise

Students will recognize the role that climate change is expected to play in future global sea-level rise. Environmental factors (melting ice, thermal expansion, etc.) associated with sea-level rise will be compared in terms of relative impact. Economic and ecological impacts of sea-level rise on the South Carolina coast will be highlighted.
