Sea Level Rise
Sea levels are rising due to increasingly warmer annual temperatures causing glaciers and ice caps to melt at faster rates than ever before. Come join the Seaside team in our efforts to monitor sea level rise in Cape Ann using marking flags, meter sticks and spotting scopes.
Teaching about sea level rise, storm surge, and the tides, both seasonal tide changes and our extreme king tides are all part of our mission. Learning about changes in sea level and the impact of storm surges that are facing our coasts is paramount to the future of our cities. If we understand the changes that will affect our homes and cities, we can effectively plan for our future with these criteria in mind.
