Sea level feedback lowers projections of future Antarctic Ice-Sheet mass loss, says CPO-funded research 1 December 2015

Sea level feedback lowers projections of future Antarctic Ice-Sheet mass loss, says CPO-funded research

Research supported by CPO’s MAPP and CVP programs evaluated the influence of the feedback mechanism between sea-level fall and ice sheets on future AIS retreat on centennial and millennial timescales for different emission scenarios, using a coupled ice sheet-sea-level model.

Coastal resiliency planning with 3D storm surge models-an improvement over 2D models?

A new paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans explores the ability of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional storm surge models to simulate current, sediment transport, and the effects of vegetation on storm surge.

Science needs for sea level adaptation planning 19 October 2015

Science needs for sea level adaptation planning

A new paper by Lindeman et. al—supported by the Climate Program Office—performed a synthesis of science needs from coastal communities by reporting on workshops held in Florida, North Carolina, and Massachusetts. The paper, “Science Needs for Sea-Level Adaptation Planning: Comparisons among Three U.S. Atlantic Coastal Regions,” was published online in the journal of Coastal Management on October 14, 2015.
