Seminar: The global ocean wind and wave climate

Join us for the launch of a new research unit – Coastal and Ocean Extremes – lead by Prof Ian Young. To launch the unit Prof Young will deliver a public seminar on The global ocean wind and wave climate: how it is changing and projections for 2100.

This seminar will investigate global ocean wind and wave climate and ocean extremes. It will describe changes in ocean winds and waves over the last 30 years and projections for future changes out to 2100. It will also look at projections for sea-level rise and the role waves play in determining coastal flooding. The results presented will use measurements from a unique dataset of more than 20 satellite missions which have been combined to produce a single long-term global database of wind speed and wave height. Model results will also be used to project future changes.

Seminar details to come.
