Transcript: Water & Wildfires Investigating short-term photodegradation of dissolved pyrogenic carbon + Background Background photodegradation Methods fluorescence Where is there a lot of ice on Earth? Is the ice on land or at sea? Results Question Which type of ice, if any, contributes more to sea-level rise? Explain your thinking on the data sheet. Question The data sheet can be found here: Materials Let’s get our materials and build our model in groups of 2-3. Materials Your will need: 2 6x6 plastic storage containers 2 equal amounts of clay, enough to fill a side of the container with 1-2 inches of clay Ice cubes once your model is assembled Ruler and water Directions Directions In both containers, press the clay into the short side making clay “shelves” in both contains. Try to make each container look the same. Label them Container 1 and Container 2. In Container 1, put the ice on top of the clay shelf. In Container 2, put the ice on the plastic, and fill the plastic area with water until the ice cubes float. No ice should be touching the bottom. Pour an equal amount of water into Container 1, making sure the water doesn’t touch the ice sitting on top of the clay shelf. An equal number of ice cubes should be in each container as well. And the water in both containers should be room temperature, so fill several pitchers with water and let them sit overnight before the experiment. Mark the water level on each container. Testing Test Measure the water level and record it on the data sheet. Compare the water level with the marked line in the clay. Allow the ice in both tubs to melt completely. Graph Use the measurements recorded on the data sheet to create a two-line graph representing the water level in each tub. Graph On the X axis, track the depth over 10-minute increments. On the Y axis, mark the depth of the water per each measurement. You will create two lines - one for ice in the water, the other for ice on the clay. Let’s discuss Discuss Did the water in Container 1 or 2 rise more? Does this match your prediction? Why do you think this happened? How does this connect to the rise in global sea levels? How does the melting of Earth’s glaciers influence sea-level rise? How about the melting of icebergs? Video Here is a time lapse video of both sea and land ice melting in Antarctica. What do you notice? Does it confirm your findings? Video Conclusions Now, let’s watch this video that further discusses the rising seas levels. During and after you watch, record on two separate sticky notes or index cards: Three takeaways that you think are important or surprising Two questions you have about rising sea levels Hang onto your takeaways and questions. Let’s investigate! Let's Investigate Now, let’s consult two reading sources. Working in pairs, one person reads a paragraph while the other forms a question about what was read. Ask the question of the reader and talk about the answer. Shift roles every paragraph. Record all questions on paper. Hold onto your questions. Click here for the reading: Click here for the reading: Acknowledgments Let’s share With what you've learned and the questions that you likely still have, team up with another pair and share your takeaways from the videos and readings. Using Prezi or Prezi Video: 1. Report on the top 10 things we need to know about the melting ice and rising seas. 2. List three questions you still have about rising oceans.
