Welcome to MEDFLOOD!

MEDFLOOD is a four-year (2012-2015) interdisciplinary project launched in 2012 by a team of scientists working in fields concerned with Mediterranean sea-level change. The project has the timely and ambitious aim to build a spatially explicit database of relative sea level markers for the Mediterranean and to use this resource to model risk and help project future flooding in and around the Mediterranean basin.

Medflood is sponsored by INQUA as project 1203 under the Commission of Coastal and Marine Processes.

In this website you will find details on the project, updates on the events related to it, and people involved.

If you are and Earth scientist or an Archaeologist working in the field of relative sea level markers, we encourage you to submit the data you published to contribute to the building of a freely accessible database.

The next MEDFLOOD meeting will take place in Haifa, Israel, from the 20th to the 25th of October 2014 and will be organized by our member E. Galili. Please contact J. Benjamin (jonathan.benjamin@flinders.edu.au) for further information. The program of the workshop will be posted soon, and will include a 3-day field excursion and a one-day intensive workshop on Mediterranean sea level markers.
