Sea Level Rise and Storm Variation
Concerns about climate change highlights the needs to understand extreme sea levels and the resulting flood exposure in coastal areas on a global scale due to the potential engineering, societal and economic impacts. In this study, a global mean sea level dataset (GTSR) is adopted and the wave breaking setup contribution is included. Based on the obtained mean sea levels, a variety of extreme value analyses have been conducted. The presentation will discuss the resulting global inundation and the implications for coastal communities, populations and the global economy.
