Time-Lapse Video of Coastal Erosion near Point Barrow

Please click the photo to view the short video.

The University of Colorado has undertaken a study into the unusually rapid erosion that is taking place now and does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon.   This video shows a time-lapse footage covering just TWO MONTHS in the summer of 2008 and the jaw-dropping amount of erosion that occurs.   The interview describes some of the reasons for which this is happening, so would be a great “hook” into a lesson on erosion.
