WCRP SEA LEVEL 2022 CONFERENCE Singapore | 12 – 16 July 2022
The call for papers and registration is open for this conference (https://www.sealevelconference.org/): submit abstracts by 15 April 2022. Early bird registration rates available on and before 1 April. Limited financial assistance is available for ECS and scientists from the Global South and practitioners a case-by-case basis. More information via the registration process.
Advancing Science, Connecting Society
Paleo sea-level and glacial isostatic adjustment
Quantifying the contribution of land ice to near-future sea level rise
Sea level budget
Coastal sea level variability
Progress and challenges for regional sea level, including projections and applications
Coastal risks and adaptation
Practitioner day with talks and panels on the use of science and translation on planning, risk management, adaptation action and practices in small island nations and large cities
The conference will be fully hybrid and is planning to be carbon neutral.
Linking sea-level science to practitioner concerns and needs is an essential step towards effective coastal adaptation. Talks and participation from all those interested in these issues is encouraged. There is one day for Paleo sea-level, GIA and the cryospheric contribution to sea-level.
Five years after the WCRP sea level conference took place in New York in 2017, and one year after the last AR6 report provided a comprehensive summary of the state of climate related large scale sea level research, the conference will address the existing challenges in describing and understanding regional sea level changes. The conference will focus strongly on the link from large-scale sea level information to coastal areas and societal implications of those changes to coastal communities. This will include dedicated sessions devoted to practitioner interests and concerns, the science/practitioner interface, and the co-production between sea-level scientists and practitioners of appropriate information to support coastal adaptation.
The meeting is held in Singapore adjacent to south, south-east and east Asia where three quarters of the global population vulnerable to sea-level rise live today. The meeting is hybrid allowing virtual or in-person participation.
