A new study led by Simon Fraser University?s Dean of Science, Prof. Paul Kench, has discovered new evidence of sea-level variability in the central Indian Ocean.
Underscoring the serious threat posed to coastal cities and communities in the region, the ongoing study, which began in 2017, further suggests that if such acceleration continues over the next century, sea levels in the Indian Ocean will have risen to their highest level ever in recorded history.
The research paper authored by Kench and others, and entitled, ?Climate-forced sea-level lowstands in the Indian Ocean during the last two millennia? was published December 16, 2019, in the scientific journalNature Geoscience.
