Dear Colleagues,

please consider submitting an abstract to the joint IACS/IAMAS/IAPSO session on projecting sea level at the IUGG General Assembly (Montreal, 8-18 July, 2018, http://iugg2019montreal.com/index.html).

Note that the deadline for Abstract Submission is Monday 18 February 2019. All IACS or joint IACS sessions will take place during the 5-day period 9-13 July 2019.

JC01: Projecting sea level in the 21st century and beyond
 
Description
The seas are currently rising, and the rise is expected to continue into the 21 century and beyond, challenging societies around the globe. The primary contemporary contributors to global mean sea level are thermal expansion due to warming oceans and melting glaciers and ice sheets. Spatially-varying changes in absolute and relative sea level arise from the associated changes in solid Earth loading and variability of the Earth's gravity field. This joint symposium brings together the fields of glaciology, oceanography, atmospheric sciences, hydrology, and solid earth geophysics to assess the relative importance of each component and their respective uncertainties over the next centuries with focus on both regional and global sea level changes.

Conveners: Andy Aschwanden (USA, IACS), Ben Marzeion (Germany, IAMAS), Gary T. Mitchum (USA, IAPSO)
