Sea Level Rise and Climate Change

Dr. Don Chambers is an Associate Professor of Marine Science at the University of South Florida who specializes in using satellite observations such as radar altimetry and satellite gravimetry to better understand ocean dynamics.

His primary research focus is quantifying and understanding sea level variability, especially trying to separate natural climate variability from anthropogenic climate change. He studies all the dynamical processes that cause sea level change, including ocean circulation, ocean heat storage, ocean mass redistribution, and influx of fresh water from the continents and ice sheets.

Dr. Chambers was a Lead Author on the last climate assessment by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and is a co-author of the recently published book: “Sea Level Rise in Florida: Science, Impacts, and Options.”
