Marine Projections Key Results

Further information about the science behind these results are available at marine projections. You can also create your plots your own plumes for your location of interest through the UKCP18 User Interface.

Before using any result, read through the caveats and limitations.

In the UKCP18 Factsheet on sea level and storm surge (886KB), you can find plume plots of sea level change and the variability across the UK coastline for three emissions scenarios (RCP2.6, RCP2.4 and RCP8.5) up to 2100. It also contains a table presenting the range of projected sea level changes for 2020, 2040, 2060 and 2080 for four UK cities and three emissions scenarios with respect to 1981-2000.
