A Brief Look at Sea Level Research

Created in January 2015

A Brief Look at Sea Level Research breaks down an important method of determining past sea level change and predicting future trends. This project grew from an Independent Research Project I conducted during my time at Tufts University where I examined sea level change along the New York coast over the past 1500 years. Inspired by research methods that I found fascinating, I extended the project to create an educational resource that helps to explain what scientists investigate as they build conclusions on sea level change.
