    Research outputpeer-review


    This short report will give an overview of the phenomenology associated with global warming relevant for deep geological disposal in Boom Clay. It serves as an input document to the Safety and Feasibility Case 1 (SFC1). Two cases will be considered: global warming without and with a marine transgression in the Mol area. Future climate projections indicate that sea-level may rise significantly over the next few 10 ka. Possible consequences of global warming will be summarized and explained.
