Ocean rise

Ocean rise

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


The thermohaline circulation in the northern part of the atlantic ocean

Professional knowledge

Professional knowledge

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


Ocean rise

Threads to be met now:

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

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
