[pccgrads] PCC 586 seminar series: Sea Level Rise: Causes and Impacts-Tuesdays at 3:30pm this winter

UW Program On Climate Change uwpcc at uw.edu
Fri Jan 4 08:43:10 PST 2019

Graduate students can register for this seminar as OCN/ATMS/ESS 586
for 2 credits; all are welcome.

*Sea Level Rise: Causes and Impacts*
Led by LuAnne Thompson, Oceanography
OCN 425
Tuesdays at 3:30

Global warming has resulted in over 20 cm of sea level rise since 1900.
The rate of rise has accelerated over the previous two decades and future
projections suggest that there is much more to come. In this seminar, we
will explore what we know about what controls sea level rise over a variety
of time and space scales. In addition, we will examine how sea level rise
is expected to impact human and natural systems and how we can adapt to
these changes.
