'Governments and their planners responsible for management and defences against coastal flooding need the best science to identify present and future risks. This authoritative new book gives an excellent and comprehensive account of the science which underpins our understanding of sea levels, and its practical application on our changing planet.' Wendy Watson-Wright, Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, UNESCO

'Professors Pugh and Woodworth's book is timely, authoritative, and will certainly have a prominent place on my bookshelf. It is a unique resource for teachers of upper undergraduate to graduate level courses, and will also be used often by sea level researchers, coastal engineers and planners, and by many others with an interest in sea level.' Gary T. Mitchum, Associate Dean, College of Marine Science, University of South Florida, and Chair, Global Sea Level Observing System
