Changing Sea Levels

Change the sea level for three different types of landscape.
As climate changes over long periods of time, the sea level also changes. In cold periods, ice accumulates at the poles; when it is hot, the ice melts and sea level rises. Notches in shore areas show evidence of such changes; they are a tool for the reconstruction of the paleoclimate.
