New Sea Level Book

The PSMSL has contributed strongly to the publication of the book "Understanding Sea-level Rise and Variability" by Church, Woodworth, Aarup, and Wilson. The concept for this book arose out of contributions to the World Climate Research Programme workshop held in Paris in 2006.

From the promotional material: "This book identifies the major impacts of sea-level rise, presents up-to-date assessments of past sea-level change, thoroughly explores all of the factors contributing to sea-level rise, and explores how sea-level extreme events might change. It identifies what is known in each area and what research and observations are required to reduce the uncertainties in our understanding of sea-level rise so that more reliable future projections can be made. A synthesis of findings provides a concise summary of past, present and future sea-level rise and its impacts on society."
