AGU Fall meeting Session "Coastal Sea-level Rise and Isostatic Adjustment"

Volker Klemann

Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the following AGU Fall 2017 meeing

Coastal Sea-level Rise and Isostatic Adjustment

Submit an Abstract to this Session

Session ID#: 26355

Session Description:
Low-lying coastal areas such as river deltas and atolls are extremely vulnerable to sea-level rise. Relative sea-level (RSL) change is driven by changes in vertical land motion (e.g. glacial, sedimentary, and hydrologic loading, sediment compaction, fluid extraction) and changes in sea level (e.g. eustasy, steric effects, ocean circulation, glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA)). Understanding the mechanisms behind past and present RSL change on both global and regional scales is critical for predicting and mitigating future hazards. We invite contributions that constrain past and present RSL changes due to GIA and recent ocean-mass and ocean-circulation variations as well as regional hydrologic and sedimentary loading processes in coastal zones. Additionally, we welcome broader contributions that include paleo-RSL reconstructions, ice sheet reconstructions, and analyses of modern geodetic data from GNSS, tide gauges, and altimetry. This session is sponsored by PALSEA2.
