This webinar, held March 25, 2015, covers new projections on sea-level rise in BC based on the latest science from the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The projections incorporate global sea-level rise from glaciers and ice sheets, warming of the oceans, groundwater extraction, and impoundment of water in reservoirs, and include local factors such as vertical land motion and dynamic oceanographic changes. The projections of relative sea-level rise give a basis for considering future extreme water levels and associated flooding events.
