Sea Level from Coast to Global Ocean
The aim of this course is to provide a grounding in both practical and theoretical aspects of sea level science in the context of climate change. In the last few years it has become rapidly apparent that coastal flooding as a result of intense storms is forming one of the more immediate consequences of changes in storm severity and frequency consistent with what we would expect in a warming climate. Worldwide, governments, coastal planners and the insurance industry are realising that understanding sea level, both in terms of its gradual change and its response to extreme weather events, is vital if we are to try to reduce or mitigate the high human and financial costs of coastal flooding. This provides the practical, and urgent context for developing high-level training in sea level.
The typical entry requirement is a Bachelors degree (with Honours) at 2.1 level or better in an appropriate field of study. Individual consideration is given to mature students with significant and relevant experience and with professional qualifications.
