TITLE: Assessing the risks of sea-level rise

ABSTRACT: Sea-level rise is a major challenge posed by climate change, threatening the ~380 million people who live within six meters of the coasts. This talk will explore (1) the physical factors driving sea-level change, (2) insights into sea-level sensitivity to global mean temperature gleaned through statistical modeling of the geological record of past sea-level change, (3) the challenges of projection future sea-level change and managing coastal risk under deep uncertainty.
