Abstract

The AA. argue that the global (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) IPCC sea-level values should be replaced by a suite of regional values, to take into account known processes that cause regional changes in sea-surface topography. Quantification of these processes, which include gravitational adjustments of the ocean surface and nearshore ocean-density changes, requires the use of numerical ocean and geophysical models. These 2 additional mechanisms are not included in IPCC assessments. A combined modelling/geological approach will produce more robust regional sea-level predictions for the UK
