SMHI is hosting expert meeting on rising sea levels

IPCC will release a special report focusing on the ocean and the cryosphere in a changing climate. Following the release, SMHI is hosting a workshop with the aim of exchanging knowledge on the topic and discussing its implications and benefits for Swedish climate planning.

The workshop will gather Swedish and international scientists with expertise on sea level rise along with climate adaptation planners and representatives from government agencies.

“The aim is to provide a platform for mutual exchange nationally and internationally where we will discuss the main uncertainties, challenges and potential solutions”, says Sofie Schöld, expert on sea levels and manager of the workshop.

National and international experts will meet

The workshop offers a mix of research presentations, discussions and information from national and international experts on climate planning in relation to rising sea levels, coastal erosion and extreme sea level events.

There are a limited number of places for the workshop but it is possible to apply for participation.

“If you work with rising sea levels, as a scientist, expert or a planner, you are very welcome to express your interest in participating at the workshop via the application form”, says Sofie Schöld.

The workshop will be arranged November 7-8, at Vildmarkshotellet, Sweden.
