Deciphering the dominant drivers of contemporary relative sea-level change: Analysing sediment deposition and subsidence in a vulnerable mega-delta

People Involved

Project Description

The overall aim of this project to establish an international collaboration (between Southampton, Hull, Utrecht, Potsdam and Can Tho) that draws together interdisciplinary expertise pertaining to the estimation of: (i) fluvial sediment loads supplied to deltas, (ii) delta-plain sedimentation, and (iii) ground-surface subsidence, all within the specific context of the Mekong delta, one of the world's most vulnerable mega-deltas. Specifically, we will build a lasting collaboration geared to providing the data sets and expertise necessary to build the first integrated analysis of the factors driving contemporary relative sea-level rise across an iconic mega-delta.
