What are some causes of sea-level rise? Is it impacting all coastlines? Sea-level rise is a very real flood condition that has caught the attention of many coastal communities around the U.S. This interactive online course will provide information about the potential magnitude of this rising water, the planning required to better resist the effects of this rising water, and why sea level rise can be so damaging to the built environment. A few case studies will be included to illustrate what is being done around the country to combat this serious climate change issue.

1. The instructor's pointer is not visible in the slides with pictures, where he is apparently using a laser pointer or a cursor arrow. 2. In the course, some of the checkpoints are either out of order (the one about the wood stud connection failure) or the information needed is not clear (the one about the breaking wave force on a pile from the SLR scenario noted in the previous question) i.e. there was no previous question. In the exam at the end, this is question 11 and the previous question 10 did have the info. But very confusing in the course.
good technical course.
