A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the rate of sea-level rise and the response of shorelines to sea-level change.
Students will examine and analyze sea-level change data and shoreline response for the coast of California including Point Reyes National Seashore. They will learn about coastal vulnerability and will calculate the coastal vulnerability index (CVI).
