    Best practice How can you compute the probability of an extreme rise in sea level? download

    Knowledge base - The sea level is rising, but how much and where are the subject of debate. The goal of the interdisciplinary eSalsa team is to generate predictions that help us determine the risk of very high rises. Project leader Prof. Dr. Ir. Henk Dijkstra: “We see a significantly increasing risk of an extreme sea level rise in the North Sea area.”
