DFG Priority Programme „Regional Sea Level Change and Society (SeaLevel)“

The DFG Priority Programme aims at furthering our understanding of regional sea level change and its impacts on societies. This requires integrated research between natural and social sciences. SeaLevel focuses on two study regions: the North and Baltic Seas, with potential impacts on Germany, and the South-East Asia region, which encompasses several coastal megacities, low-lying islands and delta regions. There are three main research areas in this call: (1) global and regional sea level change, (2) regional impacts on biophysical and societal system in Northern Europe and South-East Asia, and (3) adaptation, decision analysis and governance. The SPP is coordinated by Prof. Detlef Stammer(CEN). For more information you may also contact Eleni Tzortzi.
Deadline: 31 October
