-maldives

New and updated padlet page with all you need on the Maldives for the AQA A GCSE Geography course. Click here… the exam may require you to talk about the economic, environmental and political effects of rising sea levels, so look for those three things on this page

DON’T FORGET

You will also need to know the reasons behind sea level rise. These briefly are:

  1. Melted water from the ice caps flowing into the sea
  2. Melted water from glaciers flowing into the sea
  3. “Thermal Expansion: when the water warms it expands

All these three causes are themselves created by Global Warming
