Demands for professional knowledge

Walter Brüsch (geologist – groundwater, drinking water, organic micro pollutants)

Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland


Melting ice on greenland

(Krabill et al., 1999)

Melting ice on Greenland

Sea ice and melting of marginal icecap


Just now sea level rise contribution from greenland

Rignot & Kanagaratnam, 2006

Just now – sea level rise, contribution from Greenland

app. 1 mm/yr in 2010



Groundwater level rise in sandy areas but drop in clay areas dry summers wet stormy winters
Groundwater level rise in sandy areas but drop in clay areas Atlantic ocean=>dry summers, wet stormy winters

EU, IAFP


Professional knowledge
Professional Atlantic oceanknowledge

Consequences of Sea Level Rise :

Nature in coastal areas

Invasive species, sea or land migration

Dykes and low land areas near the coast

Number of storms and increasing intensity – 1/100 years storm each year?

Salt water intrusion in coastal groundwater reservoirs

Temperature

Precipitation

Drought or too much water


Threads to be met now: Atlantic ocean

Flooding of cities, houses, vulnerable nature etc in lowlands

Roads and transport, sewer and drains

Tourist industry

Water level in rivers and estuaries

Invasive insects

New pesticides

Drinking water resources

Etc

Etc

Etc


Expert professional knowledge
Expert/ professional knowledge Atlantic ocean

Local authorities

Coastal experts, engineers (harbour, waste water, floods etc)

Biologist, e.g. marine and zoologist, ecology, etc

Climate – modelers, meteorology, etc

Geology – drinking water, etc
