Melting Ice, Sea Level, and Feedback Loops

There is scientific consensus that global climate is changing, and that our poles (both north and south) are warming. This warming is having an affect on all that snow and ice. In this activity, [students] will explore how one impact of climate change, melting ice, affects global sea levels and investigate a feedback loop arising from disappearing sea ice.
