Using Interglacials To Assess Future Sea_level Scenarios

Project overview

Existing sea-level rise projections do not account for the longer-term changes in global land-based ice volume. Although this ice-sheet contribution to sea-level change develops over decades to centuries, its long-term impact is large and virtually irreversible. It therefore dominates the uncertainty in future sea-level projections.

The aims of this project were to:
Quantify sea-level variation during interglacial periods (warm periods in between global ice ages)
Quantify relationships between global ice volume and climatalogical control processes

Research interests

  • I have four main areas of research, as follows:
  • Mean Sea level: local, regional and global trends, detection of accelerations, understanding of inter-annual variability
  • Extreme sea levels and coastal Flooding: Changes in storm surges, extreme value analysis, compound events,

Collaborating research institutes, centres and groups
