Group: Marine Physics and Ocean Climate.

Subgroup: Sea Level and Ocean Climate.

Based in NOC-Liverpool, I am employed by the Natural Environment Research Council, and am a Honorary Research Fellow in the University of Liverpool, Department of Earth Sciences.

I am a member of Sea Level subgroup and member of the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) group at NOCL, which is the global data bank for long term global and regional sea level information.

Main research interests are:

  • understanding of the global climate change
  • regional and global sea level rise
  • the role of the sea ice in the climate system
  • ENSO effect in global and regional scales
  • development and application of advanced statistical methods to climate related time series
  • extreme events
  • geoengineering

 

My particular expertise is in the variability of global and regional sea level change and development and application of advanced statistical methods.

Together with my co-authors we have produce several global mean sea level reconstructions, including unique reconstruction since 1700, using tide gauge observations from Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL). Reconstructions are available PSMSL web page http://www.psmsl.org/products/reconstructions/

Our waveletcoherence method has been widely used by scientists in different disciplines and results of applications of this method have been published in more than 500 papers. Description of the wavelet coherence function in Matlab (wcoher) has a reference to our paper.

Description of our waveletcoherence method and matlab codes are available from

https://noc.ac.uk/marine-data-products/cross-wavelet-wavelet-coherence-toolbox-matlab

 

My recent work has focused on sea level projections by 2100 and longer, changes in extreme sea levels in the past and their link to climate change.
