Speaker: Roderik van de Wal, Institute for Marine and Atmospheric research Utrecht Department of Physical Geography Utrecht University
In this presentation major highlights of the SROCC report will be discussed. Emphasis will be on the sea-level results. Results will be discussed for the compilation of observational evidence on sea level change and the components contributing to it, as well as on the projections of sea level change up to 2100 and the long-term evolution up to 2300. Besides trends in sea level results will be discussed in the changes in extreme sea level events. As the report is an effort to bridge the physical sciences and adaptation sciences it will be attempted to discuss how these fields are bridged. Additionally, examples will be given on how the summary for policy makers changed during the approval session.
