ODU Researcher to Lead NASA Sea Level Change Team

NASA announced Sept 26 that Old Dominion University researcher Ben Hamlington will serve as the agency's Sea Level Change Team (SLCT) for the next three years. The new SLCT consists of eight members selected from 20 research proposals. Hamlington's research proposal, "Identifying, Quantifying and Projecting Decadal Sea Level Change" was chosen from five proposals to lead the team. According to NASA, the program is intended to integrate research to improve the accuracy of sea level rise estimates and communicate those results in a simplified manner to the scientific community and general public.
