Sea Level arrow Level 5

Designing Your Own Investigation

You have used real data to begin to understand changes in water levels. Most of the work has been an examination of how sea level changes on a relatively small scale – at a single location or station and over a very short period of time. Now, it is time to examine sea level on a larger scale by developing your own investigation using real data.

Using what you've learned, develop your own hypothesis about how water levels change in different places or in response to different factors. Then see if you can get data to support or disprove it!
