Dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased to invite you to submit an abstract to our session focused  on coastal change  at the forthcoming EGU meeting in Vienna (12-17 April 2015), entitled "Coastal Change: How do sea-level changes, coastal dynamics and catastrophic events affect those living and working at the coast? “.  

Details can be found at:  http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2015/session/18760
Session Description:  An increased public awareness of predicted future sea-level rise combined with recent devastating extreme events (e.g., 2011 Tohoku tsunami, 2012 Hurricane Sandy and 2013 Typhoon Haiyan) has placed significant socioeconomic relevance on the understanding of human-land-ocean interaction and coastal dynamics. A crosscutting theme relevant to all time frames is the impact of humans on past and the future coastal landscapes. This session invites submissions that will assist in assessing human interactions, coastal dynamics and vulnerability at different temporal and spatial scales. Such studies are immediately relevant to a variety of stakeholders interested in the future of coastal communities. By sub-theme, the session invites contributions that cover catastrophic or instantaneous events (minutes to hours); measurable and predictable changes (hours to years) for planning scale decisions (years to decades) and; geological-scale changes (centuries to millennia) that a crucial for a complete hazard assessment.

Convener: Charles Rubin (Nanyang Technological University)
Conveners: Adam Switzer (Nanyang Technological University), Benjamin Horton (Rutgers University)

The deadline for general abstracts is the 7th January 2015.

Students and early career researchers need to get busy if they wish to be eligible for financial support from the EGU as the deadline for abstract submission with financial support is 28 November 2014 (see: http://www.egu2015.eu/support_and_distinction.html).

Please do not hesitate to contribute!


Charles Rubin, Adam Switzer, & Ben Horton
