Demands for professional knowledge
Walter Brüsch (geologist – groundwater, drinking water, organic micro pollutants)
Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland
Sea ice and melting of marginal icecap
app. 1 mm/yr in 2010
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
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
Water level in rivers and estuaries
Drinking water resources
Coastal experts, engineers (harbour, waste water, floods etc)
Biologist, e.g. marine and zoologist, ecology, etc
Climate – modelers, meteorology, etc
Geology – drinking water, etc
