Sea Level Rise: Around the World and Here at Home

January 11, 2022

Dr. Ian Miller, Coastal Hazard Specialist, Washington Sea Grant

Sea level rise is an impact of climate change and is of special concern to coastal communities around the world. Dr. Ian Miller will talk through the current state of the science as it relates to both observed and projected or future sea level globally, and in the waters around Washington State. Ian works with coastal communities and public agencies on the Olympic Peninsula to strengthen their ability to plan for and manage coastal hazards, including tsunamis, chronic erosion, coastal flooding, and other hazards associated with climate change.

This webinar is co-sponsored by NOAA's Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary and Feiro Marine Life Center.
