Summer School on "Sea-level change: observations, processes and modelling"

1-5 July 2019, Delft, The Netherlands

The Summer School on "Sea-level change: observations, processes and modelling" will cover the most important physical processes contributing to sea level change and the main observations thereof. The focus is on the dynamics of these processes, on how they are modelled, on how past and current changes can be observed, and on current limitations in our understanding of sea level variations, including our ability to project future changes.

The Summer School will provide Ph.D. students and junior scientists specializing in sea level research with a basic introduction to the dynamics of current and future sea level change and to state-of-the-art tools to measure and project it. The different contributors to global and regional sea level change will be presented by world-leading experts. The school has a strong component on "hands-on" learning, with practical exercises on the observation and modelling of sea level change, its contributors, and forcing mechanisms. Participants will also receive a training on science communication.
