Notice sea level is decreasing in the very nothern lattitudes due to tectonic isostatic rebound - the land is rising due to weight relieved since the ice from the last ice age has melted - cool!

This is all very intimidating. How many of us will need to budge in order to help ?

What do you say to people that say that the changes we

Wow, you left me with a lot to think about. Thank you!

we're seeing are due to natural cycles and have nothing to do with carbon emmissions?

sorry, pressed enter too soon

Does NOAA have something like this for the Midwest? Where I live we often have the road/bridge underwater along the river after heavy rain, which seem to be increasing. Or stronger tornados.

Dr. Sweet, what made you interested in learning about Sea Level Rise? In other words, why is so important for educators to know more about this subject? I apologize if the question/questions are vague

Could regenerative farming help to mitigate sea level rise if more carbon is sequestered in our soils?
