Better understanding of sea level rise in South Dunedin

Thursday, 13 April 2017 11:56am

Our response to sea-level rise affecting South Dunedin should not wait until the science is settled, the University of Otago’s Centre for Sustainability says.

To help with that response, the Centre’s researchers have compiled a multi-layered database with superimposed maps.
ut together by summer scholarship student Leigh McKenzie, the database features more than 140 digital layers of information about the at-risk part of greater South Dunedin, including flood hazards, modelled water ponding under different scenarios, house ages and demographic details from the New Zealand Census.
