Project description

Testing the waters with sub-hourly sea level fluctuations

The rise of sea level caused by climate change represents a major challenge for our society. The mean sea level (MSL) is estimated to rise up to 60 cm worldwide by the end of our century. As a result, flood risks related to extreme sea levels (ESLs) will multiply, causing extreme situations along many coastlines around the world. These can result in significant human tolls and economic losses. The EU-funded SHExtreme project will study for the first time the role sub-hourly sea level fluctuations play in ESLs. By applying high-resolution sea-level data, it will attempt the first inclusive estimation of intensity, frequency and temporal and spatial distribution of existing and future sub-hourly ESLs along European coasts.
