Personal profile

Personal information

My name is Bas de Boer and I am a postdoctoral researcher working together with Didier Roche and Pepijn Bakker on past and future sea-level change. My expertise is in climate, ice-sheet and sea-level modelling, developing (global) coupled models and comparing model output with past (paleo) observations of climate change. I have looking into different periods of the past, Cenozoic ice-sheet changes, the warm Pliocene and the glacial-interglacial changes in the Pleistocene. In the current project we will look into how ice sheets responded to climate changes during the last interglacial as an analogue for the future, and also run simulations to project future sea-level change and investigate the impact of sea-level rise.
