At home and abroad there is increasing agreement that we are facing an existential environmental crisis. Death, destruction, and disruption by extreme weather events, haze from forest...
Sea Level Research - Benjamin Horton
The sea level research lab investigates sea-level and environmental change. We aim to understand and integrate the external and internal mechanisms that have determined sea-level changes in the past, and which will shape such changes in the future. Our research primarily focuses on sea-level changes caused by climate variability and tectonics (e.g., earthquakes and tsunamis) throughout the globe and from a variety of environments ranging from salt-marshes and mangroves to coral microatolls.
The understanding of Holocene relative sea-level (RSL) change in Southeast Asia is fragmentary. We will use geological proxies to reconstruct RSL at ±<0.2m vertical and decadal-to-centennial temporal resolution in Indonesia and Malaysia.
