Sea level change: why, how much and what if?

Sea level change is at the center of the current debate about the consequences of global warming: areas that might be flooded by the end of the century are  hosting hundreds of millions of people and major economic assets.

With this Symposium, the TU Delft Climate Institute aims at presenting some fundamental facts about the scientific understanding and evidence of present-day sea level change, and its consequences. During the round table discussion, experts from different disciplines will share their views about the challenge represented by sea level rise and answer questions from the audience.
