Sea Level

As anthropogenic emissions increase, the temperature of the planet increases. As a result, ice melt and thermal expansion of the oceans leads to sea level rise. Regionally, sea level changes due to local forcing from the atmosphere, changes in ocean circulations, and ocean bathymetry. We are interested in several aspects of sea level dynamics such as:

– How sensitive coastal surges are to atmospheric forcing? (e.g., Wilson et al. 2013)
