Shelby Porter's curator insight, December 12, 2013 3:23 AM

Normally we see erosion on a piece of land over a long period of time. In this short video, we see what erosion can do to in mere minutes. It is scary to think how much the roads we drive on are eroding right underneath our cars. It is amazing how much the environment around us can change due to the weather.

This video is crazy! It shows the erosion of a road during a storm. The water was supposed to run under the road and flow through a large pipe. As you can see after watching the video the road eventually erodes and then the pipe begins to bouy up and down. Later the road is completely deteriorated and the pipe ran down the river with the rest of the road.

Land O' Lakes: Melting Glaciers Transform Alpine Landscape - SPIEGEL ONLINE

Land O' Lakes: Melting Glaciers Transform Alpine Landscape - SPIEGEL ONLINE | Science Curriculum Links |
Climate change is dramatically altering the Swiss Alps, where hundreds of bodies of water are being created by melting glaciers. Though the lakes can attract tourists and even generate electricity, local residents also fear catastrophic tidal waves.
Leslie Buford's insight:

Seeing concrete evidence of climate change helps students to grasp  this complex topic.  I wonder if it would work to create an inquiry based project around the appearance of these lakes?
