REST-COAST published a new scientific article in collaboration with PROTECT and CoCliCo

21 July 2023

The collaborative efforts of the REST-COAST, PROTECT, and CoCliCo projects have resulted in a recently published paper in the esteemed Communications Earth & Environment journal. 

Entitled "The evolving landscape of sea-level rise science from 1990 to 2021," this study delves into the implications of rising global temperatures on our planet's oceans. Through in-depth research, the paper sheds light on the multifaceted consequences of this alarming trend, including the thermal expansion of oceans, the rapid loss of ice sheets and glaciers, and fluctuations in land water storage.

The findings presented in this comprehensive analysis provide a critical understanding of the evolving science behind sea-level rise and offer valuable insights into the urgent challenges posed by climate change.
