We are pleased to present a talk by Prof. Colin Woodroffe (School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia): “Sea-level change and shoreline response: the past as a guide to the future of our coasts.” Colin will be discussing if ‘the present is the key to the past’, can the past be… Read More Coastal Seminar Series 2015 – Prof. Colin Woodroffe
Co-director of the ECE MSC Prof Robert Nicholls and researcher Dr Sally Brown are visiting the Maldives this week as part of two European Commission funded projects, IMPACT2C and RISES-AM. Both projects analyse the impacts of climate change and subsequent sea-level rise, focusing on a number of case studies, of which the Maldives is a part.… Read More Visit to the Maldives part of study into impacts of climate change and subsequent sea-level rise
Coastal regions under threat from climate change and sea-level rise need to tackle the more immediate threats of human-led and other non-climatic changes, according to a team of international scientists. The team of 27 scientists from five continents was led by Dr Sally Brown at the University of Southampton, and from Ocean and Earth Science… Read More Managing coasts under threat from climate change and sea-level rise
The second technical workshop on Best Practices for the Formulation of Localized Sea Level Rise/Coastal inundation ‘Extremes’ Scenarios in the Pacific Islands was held in November at the University of Hawaii, Honolulu. The key aims were to outline: (1) best practices and methodologies for the formulation of probabilistic estimates of extreme water levels under a changing climate… Read More How to define extreme sea level scenarios in the Pacific Islands?
