NOAA Says Sea Level Rise is “1.7 – 1.8 Millimeters Per Year”

Hat tip to Junk Science:

Global Regional Trends Comparison (4 Main Regions, various subregions)

“The graphs compare the 95% confidence intervals of relative mean sea level trends for CO-OPS and global stations. Trends with the narrowest confidence intervals are based on the longest data sets. Trends with the widest confidence intervals are based on only 30-40 years of data. The graphs can provide an overarching indication of the differing rates of regional vertical land motion, given that the absolute global sea level rise is believed to be 1.7-1.8 millimeters/year. Note that they are relative sea level trends, and are not corrected for local land movement. The calculated trends for all CO-OPS stations are available as a table in millimeters/year and in feet/century. A complete table of non-CO-OPS station trends are available as a table in millimeters/year and in feet/century.”

  1. Once again, skeptics are right.

  2. I didn’t reach the same conclusion from looking at those plots. Most of the sea level increase must be taking place where water is warming up abnormally, which means in the eastern pacific away from land.

    Off topic, I read a small selection from this book, it seems to be worth a read

  3. 1. Someone owes Nils Axel Moehner an apology.
    2. There is a discrepancy between tidal gauge measurements and satellite measurements, the latter being higher. This should be thought of as a fundamental problem. Exactly how do they measure the radius of the satellites orbit.
    3. Tidal gauge measurements are thought to over estimate rise by about 1 mm because they are in areas being built up and therefore settling.
