sealevelchangeOpen.Ed have published a new online resource for teachers, exploring how and why sea levels have varied over the last tens of thousands of years, and the effects this had both at the time and today. The resource was designed, developed and produced by Roseanne Smith as part of the GeoScience Outreach course at the University of Edinburgh.

The resource is aimed at Scottish CfE Third and Fourth level as a part of the Broad General Education, and can be used as part of Geography teaching. It has strong applications in glaciation work, geology work, and as an illustration when discussing the potential impacts of global warming.
