  Information - IS48 - OS21/CL3/HS12.1/NH6.5 Observations and Causes of Sea Level Change: A Session to Mark the 75th Anniversary of the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) (co-organized by OS, CL, HS & NH)

Event Information
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

Preliminary List of Solicited Speakers
Mark Dyurgerov, University of Colorado, USA
Neil White, CSIRO, Australia
Josh Willis, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, USA
Jason Lowe, Hadley Centre, Met Office, UK
