PSMSL at the EGU 2008 Assembly

In 2008 the PSMSL marks its 75th anniversary. As one of the commemorative events, PSMSL organised a Interdivision Session at the European Geophysical Union General Assembly 2008. Due to the large number of abstract submissions, we received four oral and two posters sessions that were very well attended.

Below is the the session description and a link to presentations that were contributed to this website. We would like to thank all of the contributors who made the session a success.

IS48: Observations and Causes of Sea Level Change: A Session to Mark the 75th Anniversary of the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL)

Research into sea level rise and variability spans many areas of science (oceanography, glaciology, hydrology, climate change, geophysics etc.). Sea level is an integrated quantity of a number of global processes and is also of considerable practical relevance to coastal populations and infrastructure. This session will include presentations which provide new insight into the space and time scales of sea level rise and variability and into the reasons for sea level change. Research which makes use of any observational or analysis technique will be welcome. Of particular interest will be research which makes use of data from the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL), the global data bank for long term sea level change from tide gauges.
