    Sea Level Research Unit

SLRU, established in 1987, specialises in inter-disciplinary basic and applied research funded from a wide range of sponsors, including research councils, the U.S. Geological Survey, conservation organisations, Government, business and commerce. Our research covers a wide range of temporal and spatial scales: from interglacial/glacial cycles through to the present; and global through to very local-scale changes.

The sections below illustrate the main themes of our research, though most individual projects integrate different elements and approaches from two or more of these:

Our main research themes are:

  • Global sea-level change
  • Ice sheet contributions to sea-level change
  • Policy-relevant sea-level research and outreach
  • Seismic and tsunami hazards
