Global and Regional Sea Level Variability and Change

June 10-12, 2015, Mallorca, Spain

This 2.5 day workshop aimed at evaluating the current state-of-knowledge of the sea level science, providing a forum for the discussion and the exchange of ideas on key sea level issues, and fostering collaboration across the wide range of disciplines involved in sea level research.

The workshop was dedicated to these topics: Paleo Sea Level, Vertical Land Movements, Mean Sea Level Observations and Processes, Modelling Sea Level Changes, Sea Level Extremes, Coastal Impacts of Sea Level Changes, Special session on Mediterranean Sea Level.
