Current Projects

At present the CMP is sponsoring one International Focus Group and one project:

  • PALSEA2 (PALeo-constraints on SEA-level rise 2): PALSEA2 is an International Focus Group focused on using past changes in sea level and Earth’s cryosphere to constrain future sea-level rise in response to climate change.
  • MEDFLOOD project: MEDiterranean sea-level change and projection for future FLOODing. MEDFLOOD is an interdisciplinary project launched in 2012 by a team of scientists working in fields concerned with Mediterranean sea-level change. The project aims to build a spatially explicit database of relative sea-level markers for the Mediterranean and to use this resource to model risk and help project future flooding in and around the Mediterranean basin.
