Abstract: The thesis aims to address the paradoxical nature of capitalizing on the consequences of sea level rise and bring out the possible potentials of sea level rise on Singapore. Emphasis is always given to mitigating impacts of sea level rise rather than seeing it as an opportunity. Sea level rise will create ‘problems’ like land loss and possible increase in tidal ranges and it is especially so for Singapore, as it is a low lying country. Singapore is well known for being an entrepot for dry goods due to its prime location and the thesis seeks to utilize the ‘problems’ of sea level rise to create refrigeration to be a bulk breaking centre for frozen goods. Refrigeration is vital to the tropics because refrigeration can allow food to be kept fresh and it allows alterations to be made to the environment to suit human’s needs. The creation of refrigeration enables people to bring the natural humid environment to acceptable human comfort which is essential for people living in the tropics. The dilemma of using refrigeration is that refrigeration requires massive amount of energy to run the refrigeration systems which is critical to the energy and resources scarce world. The thesis is to utilize tidal power to run refrigeration systems.
