Global Sea Level Change from Satellite: Regional Changes and Causes




Greater Copenhagen area

It is well confirmed that sea level is rising in nearly all parts of the world’s ocean. A common global value often quoted is 3 mm / year. However the changes are far from uniform and ranges from larger than 1 cm/year to places where is is actually dropping during the past 2 decades. These regional changes are fundamentally linked to the causes of sea level changes like warming of the ocean and melting of the ice caps._x000D_ _x000D_ The aim is to use satellite altimetry and other remote sensing data over the past 20 years to study these changes and relationship with sea surface temperature and ice-cap melting proxies. Advanced mathematical methods (i.e., EOF, MAF at other decompositions techniques) can be applied to study the dominating regional patterns and their spatio-temporal correlation with changes in other quantities like sea surface temperature._x000D_ _x000D_ _x000D_ UddGeofysikogrumteknologi_x000D_ FagormJordensfysikogressourcer_x000D_ FagomrMiljøogklimaovervågning_x000D_ _x000D_ UddElektroteknologi_x000D_ FagomrSpacetechnology_x000D_ FagomrJordobservation_x000D_ Space Technology_x000D_ _x000D_ UddMatematiskmoddelering

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
