This video explores how extreme weather conditions accelerate sea level rise and, in turn, exacerbate tidal flooding and change land-use patterns in New Jersey's coastal communities. It recommends effective land-use planning, risk assessment, and improving physical infrastructure and technology to deal with communities under threat of flooding. This is recommended for teaching.
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
ESS3: Earth and Human Activity
MS-ESS3-2 Analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects.
HS-ESS3-1 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the availability of natural resources, occurrence of natural hazards, and changes in climate have influenced human activity.
HS-ESS3-5 Analyze geoscience data and the results from global climate models to make an evidence-based forecast of the current rate of global or regional climate change and associated future impacts to Earth systems.
College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Standards
