Tim Naish is Professor in Earth Sciences, at the Antarctic Research Centre at Victoria University. He has leadership roles on the world climate research programme, the scientific committee on Antarctic research and the Antarctic science platform. He has extensively researched sea level rise resulting from global warming of oceans and ice melting, including melting of the Antarctic ice sheets. Tim co-leads the NZ Sea Rise Research Programme working with 30 experts to provide specific estimates of expected sea level rise. This work connects vertical land movement data with climate-driven sea level rise data to forecast locally relevant sea level changes. It includes site specific forecasts for Nelson and Tasman. The SeaRise website is here https://www.searise.nz/;

In this webinar Tim clearly explains the implications for Nelson and Tasman of sea level rise and land movement. The evidence presented shows the need for urgent action.

Join Nelson Tasman Climate Forum

Please share and recommend resources here that are of interest to the whole Forum. 

Share materials that enable us to fulfill our purpose of weaving individuals, households, civil society organisations, businesses, councils and iwi together around urgent, strategic action on climate change in the Nelson-Tasman region. 

These may include both resources created by  NTCF participants and also external material. They may be works of art, books, papers, videos, podcasts, webinars, weblinks etc.

Resources that are primarily of interest at the group level should be posted in the Project Documents of the  relevant group.   

When you share a resource here, please make your write-up interesting and relevant to audiences beyond our NTCF membership. This is important because the resources posted here appear in a feed on the public front page of our website. 

Please choose a category (NTCF-Core, NTCF-General or External) and use tags when you add a new resource. Choose the EXTERNAL category for any resource that was not created by members of the Forum. 

If you have created the resource please use the Author Bio field so that your name and profile image appear with it. If you're recommending a resource, consider  identifying yourself in in the text of the post.

If your resource  involves uploading a file, please be aware that the size limit is 7mb.
