The planned outcomes include but are not limited to:

  • new science results,
  • a Coastal Community Requirements Report,
  • a document outlining a multidisciplinary long-term program of SL research in support of coastal communities,
  • a bi-annual Assessment Report: Update on state-of-understanding and future sea level estimates,
  • a database of climate quality observational datasets including uncertainties (paleo to present) and associated data requirement document,
  • a model requirement document,
  • model intercomparison analyses on sea level variability and change and participation in CMIP6 design,
  • metrics recommendations for CMIP outputs, and 
  • observing system requirements for monitoring, model development, model evaluation/validation, initialization – both satellite and in-situ.
