  • Contributions to sea-level change from land ice, ocean, atmosphere, solid Earth

Research interests

My primary  research interest is (regional) sea-level change as a consequence of climate change. I like to take a broad approach and study both global and regional sea-level change, include as many contributions as possible and look both at the recent past (20th century) and at projecting future changes for 21st century and beyond. At NIOZ my research focuses on understanding and projecting (regional) sea-level changes, and on translating these to the coastal/delta/estuarine environment.

About me

I started at the NIOZ Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research in January 2017 as a tenure track researcher. Within the Department of Estuarine & Delta Systems (EDS) I am responsible for building a research group that will focus on sea-level change, both in the open ocean and at the coast. I am also part of the NIOZ Sea Level Centre of expertise. Before that, I did a PhD at IMAU (Utrecht University, The Netherlands) and postdocs at CSIRO Ocean and Atmosphere (Hobart, Australia) and IMAU.

Totale range zeespiegelstijging groter dan gedacht
De totale range van zeespiegelstijging blijkt groter dan gedacht. Binnen 80 jaar kan een regionale stijging van 1,8 meter niet worden uitgesloten, door afname van de massa van de Antarctische ijskap. Dit concluderen onderzoekers van onder andere…

Zeespiegelstijging stelt Nederlandse kust vaker op de proef bij storm
De Nederlandse kust zal op jaarbasis steeds vaker te maken krijgen met extreem hoog water vanwege klimaatverandering. Dat blijkt uit een nieuwe risicoanalyse waaraan het Nederlands Instituut voor Onderzoek der Zee (NIOZ) heeft bijgedragen.…
