  • Title: NASA Sea-Level Change Team: From Observation to Actionable Information
  • Abstract:
    • The NASA Sea-Level Change Team (N-SLCT) was established in 2014 with the goal of improving the understanding of regional relative sea-level change on a range of timescales. The formation of this team was driven by the recognition that sea-level change results from a diverse set of physical processes that interact and combine in potentially complicated ways across a range of timescales. The N-SLCT relies heavily on NASA satellite observations in addition to reanalysis and modeling efforts to advance our understanding of sea-level change in the past, present, and future.
    • Now in its third iteration, a common goal of the team is to create integrated forecasts of sea-level across a range of timescales. Beyond the science focus of the team, the N-SLCT has broadened its scope in order to address the growing societal need for better sea-level guidance. The N-SLCT has taken tangible steps to engage the stakeholder community and create partnerships with the goal of providing “useful” sea-level information that is founded in the improved scientific understanding established by the team.
    • Here, an overview of the extent of the work being done by the N-SLCT is provided by discussing how the team is supporting sea-level decision-making. Specifically, the talk is structured around the flow of information from science to eventual application, covering the work the N-SLCT is doing in the following areas: 1) Observation, 2) Modeling and Analysis, 3) Synthesis, 4) Research-to-Application.
