Later this year a joint assembly will be held in Cape Town of the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Oceans (IAPSO), the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS), and the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA). The organisers of the assembly recently announced that the submission deadline for abstracts has been extended to 12th March.

The conference will contain a session on "Advances in Monitoring, Detecting, Understanding, Hazard Assessment and Forecasting of Mean and Extreme Coastal Sea Level" convened by Christa von Hillebrandt-Andrade, Phil Woodworth, Vasily Titov and Alexander Rabinovich. The session will examine the dynamics of sea level change and extreme sea levels, and discuss the use of sea level data for coastal operations, hazard studies and warning systems.
