Contents Notes
The United Nations declared 1998 as Year of the Ocean, whose idea was originated by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission in 1993. This poster was produced in recognition of Year of the Ocean, and it describes natural processes and events that can change the shape of the coast and affect nearby environments. It depicts coastal hazards (coastal erosion, flooding, and effects of hurricanes and tsunamis), their causes, and community preparations and responses to these hazards. The back side provides brief overviews and definitions of these hazards, and gives activity lessons, questions for teachers to use in classrooms.
