Event Description: 

The workshop aims at evaluating the current state-of-knowledge of the sea level science, providing a forum for the discussion and the exchange of ideas on key sea level issues, and fostering collaboration across the wide range of disciplines involved in sea level research.

All aspects of sea level changes will be contemplated, from global to regional, observations and modelling, processes driving mean sea level changes and extremes, from the geological scale to the instrumental era and future projections and including impacts on the coastal zones. We invite contributions from any discipline relevant to sea level (see the description of sessions below for further details). The event will take place at the University of the Balearic Islands, located in Palma de Mallorca, during 2.5 days.

The objectives of the workshop are:

– Evaluate an integrated view of the current state-of-knowledge with the most up to date outcomes.

– Identify gaps and unresolved questions in any aspect of sea level science and design the paths for future research.

– Foster international collaborations among researchers of complementary disciplines.
