Abstract
(English)
Extreme sea levels with various return Periods are estimated to rise from the present situation to higher levels during the next half a century at seventeen tide-gauge stations of the English Channel. The possible increase is ascribed to local/regional relative sea-level rise, to global sea-level rise, and to an increase in maximum surge height. This Would produce more frequently sea-level events greatly exceeding the present level of highest astronomical tide, with increased risk of coastal flooding g and erosion. The potentially more at risk seems located in the central part of the English coast, between Weymouth and Portsmouth.
