Current University Expertise:

I work on estimates of total sea level change from tide gauges and satellite altimetry. An emphasis for me is whether the observed rates (not the sea level height, but rates of change of the height) are consistent or not with past observed changes at the decadal to centennial time scale. I am also interested in the dynamics of decadal variations in regional to global scale sea level changes whether these changes are natural or anthropogenic. This interest includes decadal to centennial modulations in wintertime storminess, which I suspect might be very important for determining human vulnerability to climate change. Gary Mitchum, USF, has corrected NOAA tide gauge data to obtain more realistic estimates of sea level rise and is willing to make this dataset available
