Sea Level Hazards Publication

I'm afraid I've had to scale back my communications regarding any future climate change research that I'm conducting, so apologies for not keeping folks up to date. I've been asked when my sea level and storm surge report will be released. I'm afraid I don't have an answer to that question. I finished writing it last October (2016). It went through review and the text was finalized in February 2017. All that was left was to edit the document to make it 508 compliant (so Americans with disabilities could access the text) and get approval from Washington to release it. As far as I know, it is still waiting for approval from Washington for release. 

In the meantime, I'm pleased to announce that the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) has released a new report on disaster reduction that includes a section on hazards associated with sea level rise that I wrote. You can find the full report here: http://www.unisdr.org/we/inform/publications/52828

I have also posted just the sea level rise section on my publications page: here.

Hopefully my next update will have more positive news regarding the release of the sea level and storm surge report. We are certainly living in interesting times right now.
