      On July 28 2011, National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) had organised a national seminar to highlight research conducted by NAHRIM on sea level rise and related issues in Malaysia. This seminar has brought together the research findings from other government agencies, institutions of higher learning and also from oversea. The seminar which was held at Residence Hotel, UNITEN, Bangi officiated by Ir. Hj. Ahmad Jamalluddin bin Shaaban, Director General of NAHRIM and had attracted 120 participants.  
      The seminar started off with a presentation from the keynote speaker, Prof. Dato’ Dr. Azizan b. Hj. Abu Samah about research conducted in South China Sea related to sea level rise. Another interesting presentation was by Mr. Md. Mobassarul Hasan, an invited speaker from International Water Modelling (IWM), Bangladesh, who demonstrated the use of numerical modeling to study the impact of sea level rise and curb the issues of coastal flooding and saltwater intrusion in Bangladesh. In addition, the participants also learned on how geology and artifacts recorded the evidence of sea level rise since the existence of the earth presented by Dr. Kamaluddin Hassan from the Sarawak Mineral and Geoscience Department. In the afternoon session, participants were enlightened by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Than Aung, a physical oceanography expert from Australia, currently attached with Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) who emphasized on other crucial factors that affect sea level rise such as tectonic plate movement which can influenced the tidal recording and subsequently upon the study findings.
      In conclusion, the seminar has successfully conveyed a message to the government agencies, private and public, on the importance of awareness on the issues related to sea level rise.
