A comparison of two global datasets of extreme sea levels and resulting flood exposure: Comparison of global extreme sea levels

Abstract

Estimating the current risk of coastal flooding requires adequate information on extreme sea levels. For over a decade, the only global data available was the DINAS-COAST Extreme Sea Levels (DCESL) dataset, which applies a static approximation to estimate extreme sea levels. Recently, a dynamically derived dataset was developed: the Global Tide and Surge… (More)
