Maine Public to rebroadcast UMaine video about rising sea levels

Maine Public will rebroadcast a University of Maine-produced video about rising sea levels in Maine on Nov. 3 and 5 as part of the station’s film series.

Rising Tides: Changes in Sea Level along the Maine Coast,” produced by Ron Lisnet, manager of visual media for UMaine’s Division of Marketing and Communications, will be included in a collection of short films that begin airing at 9 p.m. on Nov. 3 and 2 p.m. on Nov. 5.

The video, released in 2021, features Joseph Kelley, professor emeritus with the School of Earth and Climate Sciences. In the film, he explains how scientists know that ocean levels are rising, and explores evidence for past and present changes in sea level at Acadia National Park.
