Policy implications of Antarctic ice sheet melting and global sea-level research

Date: 2020
Type: Cold Call Article
Authors: Professor Tim Naish and Associate Professor Richard Levy
Summary: Sea-level rise will affect parts of New Zealand in different ways. Projections beyond 2050 are uncertain, because it depends how fast we act to reduce global CO2 emissions.
