Description:

These demonstrations help to define subsidence and illustrate the resulting effects on wetlands. They will also introduce global warming and sea-level rise as factors in wetland loss. There are suggestions for more complex models to teach subsidence and formation of sinkholes related to the removal of subsurface materials such as gas and oil.
