Abstract

The data are projected future still water return levels. The data were produced by the Met Office using projections of future mean sea level change prepared at the Met Office and estimates of present-day still water return levels which were provided by the Environment Agency. The data were produced as a simple indication of the relative sizes and uncertainties in present day extreme water levels and projected future mean sea level change. The data were produced by combining preojections of mean sea level change with best estimates of present day extreme still water levels. The data in marine strand 4.09 cover the period from 2020 to 2100 and are available for 46 UK tide gauge locations.
