Just how are our seas changing and rising with climate change and the melting of Earth’s ice caps? In this three-part series, we look at the past, present and future of extreme sea level rise.
Part 1 – Extreme interglacial sea levels: We look at how ancient beaches and fossilised coral reefs from the last interglacial period – comparable to today’s Holocene – can tell us about worst-case rising sea levels.
Part 2 – The rise of meteotsunamis: In the Mediterranean and elsewhere, racing dry summer winds could make atmospheric tsunamis more common. But understanding how ‘meteotsunamis’ behave could also aid better predictions of waves that can damage in minutes.
Part 3 – Extreme urban flooding: We look at research showing how habitants of cities with high flood protection are paradoxically put more at risk of extreme flooding because measures often exclude a crucial component: human behaviour in the face of a natural disaster. We’d also look at what this means for migration and who is most vulnerable.
