Subject: Ocean Sciences Meeting session; Rising sea level: future projections
      and regional impacts

I would like to encourage you to submit an abstract to the session "Rising sea level: future projections and regional impacts" to be convened at the upcoming 2014 Ocean Sciences meeting in Honolulu ( Abstract submission will be open until October 4th.

On behalf of the session conveners,
Eric Leuliette

079 - Rising sea level: future projections and regional impacts

Observational evidence, such as from satellites, tide gauge, core sampling, etc., shows that over the past century global mean sea level has risen by 10 to 20 cm. The IPCC projected rise of 29 to 82 cm by the end of the century will have a devastating effect on coastal habitats and communities. This session aims to provide a comprehensive overview of future projections of sea level rise and to generate a discussion on the impacts of climate change on coastal environments. We seek contributions describing variability in sea level due to oceanographic, hydrologic, cryospheric, and lithospheric processes on decadal to multi-century time scales. Topic of interests include, but are not limited to, attributions of thermal expansion, ocean dynamics, gravitational effects, and glacial isostatic adjustment in regional projections of sea level change, the evaluation of short- and long-term projections in multi-model outputs, and the role of natural variability and external forcing
