Global Impact on Sea-Level Rise - GA01034

Description
To assess and quantify the impacts of sea-level rise projections (both the global mean and projections incorporating regional variation) on population at risk from flooding and wetalnds at risk for the 2020s, 2050s and 2080s for the SRES Hadley Centre climate data from runs A1F1 and B1, in a manner consistent with the previous assessment of impacts from HaDCM3 SRES runs A2 and B2 under contract EPG 1/1/71
To present the results from all four Hadley Centre SRES runs in a journal paper and contribute to a methodological paper for a Special issue of Gloabl Environmental Change.
