Event details

Coastal Seminar Series: These seminars illustrate the breadth of coastal studies at the University of Southampton. Traditionally, this seminar series is held at Highfield, hosted by the faculty of Engineering and the Environment. This term only, the seminars will be held at NOCS, and will aim to showcase areas of research within the coastal research theme at Ocean and Earth Science.

The incidence of major storm surges in the last decade has dramatically emphasized the destructive capabilities of extreme events, particularly when driven by severe tropical cyclones. In this seminar Ivan will describe the main findings from recent studies he has been involved in, aimed at assessing past and future changes in extreme water level events and estimating present day extreme water level exceedence probabilities around the whole coastline of Australia.
