AUSTRALIAN SEA-LEVEL RISE - EA ONLINE SEMINAR 5.30PM AEST - 29 JULY 2020

UPDATED MEAN SEA-LEVEL ANALYSIS AROUND AUSTRALIA 

As an island nation comprising 60,000 km of open coastline and extensive margins of increasingly urbanised inter-tidal estuarine foreshores, Australia is critically exposed to the global threat posed by rising sea levels into the future. This presentation by Phil Watson, Principal Coastal Specialist, NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, provides a summary of research undertaken to provide an updated, contemporary assessment of sea level rise around Australia to the end of 2018, based on all available tide gauge records and satellite altimetry, highlighting key emerging trends around the country.
