Climate change, sea level rise and assocciated impacts in Europe

Objective

The project aims to investigate past and future sea level changes and to assess the impacts of such changes as a basis for identifying the environmental hazards involved for Europe. It will aim at:
a) Investigation of climate and sea level changes on a century time;
b) The geological record and coastal processes;
c) Tides, surges and mean sea level;
d) Impacts of sea level change in Europe.

The objectives will be achieved through:
i) Field work, including survey of coastal profiles, boreholes and local geomorphological studies, checking of benchmarks where appropriate;
ii) Laboratory analysis of field samples;
iii) Study of historical records and computer analysis of data obtained;
iv) Statistical analysis of mean sea level, tidal and other relevant data;
v) Analysis of meteorological and climatic parameters affecting mean sea level, using both direct measurement and remote sensing;
vi) Modelling of trends and patterns of change and variation in mean sea level, tides and storm surges;
vii) Study of documentation relating to planning and policy studies in areas threatened by the sea level changes.
