‘The IPCC report and sea level change’ by Aimée Slangen

In August, the IPCC sixth assessment report was published. The report is a comprehensive overview and assessment of the current state of climate science. During the lecture, we will first discuss the IPCC itself: what is IPCC, how does it work, and what is the procedure towards an IPCC report? Then, we will discuss the main findings of the report, with a focus on observed and projected changes in sea level. Which processes are driving sea-level change, and how will sea levels change in the future?  What are the potential consequences of sea-level rise?

About the speaker

Her research focus is sea-level change, both in the open ocean and the interaction at the coast. With her research group, she aims to improve our understanding of sea-level change in the past, as well as making better projections for the future. She is Lead Author of the IPCC AR6 report, on Chapter 9: Oceans, Cryosphere and Sea Level Change.
