The water level is measured relative to the present day tide, due to changes in atmospheric storminess, an increase in mean sea level and vertical land movements
Results are shown for the (left) A2 scenario and (right) B2 scenario, used model HadRM3H. A 50-year return period means the average probability of occurrence of two events in 100 years.
