NEW ASPECTS CONCERNING THE INCREASE OF SEA LEVEL ON THE GERMAN NORTH SEA COAST

Hans Rohde

Abstract


The development of MThw on the German North Sea coast is probably related to the development of the climate. Other important contributing factors are discussed. For the last 20 years a relatively steep rise of MThw level is recognizable. An even steeper rise as a result of climate changes appears possible within the next 100 years. With regard to the great importance for coastal engineering, the necessity of attentive observation and international cooperation among different scientific disciplines is stressed.
