Report of the Fourth WCRP Grand Challenge on Regional Sea Level Change and Coastal Impacts

The 2019 meeting of the WCRP Grand Challenge on Regional Sea Level and Coastal Impacts was held over four days, with the first two days focused on the links between science and coastal climate services. The workshop, which was organized in association with IOC/GLOSS, WMO and CLIVAR focused on stimulating the uptake of coastal climate services, how they support present days and future coastal resilience, and making recommendations as to the best way forward. Outcomes included a plan for a special issue for which at least 6 papers are proposed and a summary paper about the use of sea-level rise scenarios, which builds on earlier Grand Challenge contributions in this area. Detailed outcomes are outlined in a separate report.

This report focuses on the Outcomes and Actions from the Steering Meeting of the Grand Challenge. The presentations (when permission is given) from the workshop are available from
