Global Sea Level: 1950-2000

Technical Rating: star
A short document summarizing a study by Church et al, 2004. The best estimate" of the rate of globally-averaged sea level rise over the last half of the 20th century is 1.8 +/- 0.3 mm yr-1. They further note that "to date there is no detectable secular increase in the rate of sea level rise over the period 1950-2000."

Claim That Sea Level Is Rising Is a Total Fraud

Technical Rating: star
An interview with Dr. Nils-Axel Morner. Dr. Morner is the head of the Paleogeophysics and Geodynamics department at Stockholm University in Sweden. He is past president (1999-2003) of the INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution, and leader of the Maldives Sea Level Project. He shows that the IPCC projections of sea level rise are "nonsense".

Decadal Rates of Sea Level Change During the Twentieth Century

Technical Rating: star
A summary by the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory, Liverpool, UK. It shows that the first half of the 20th century (1904-1953) had a slightly higher rate of sea level rise (1.91 mm/yr) in comparison with the second half of the century (1.42 mm/yr 1954-2003).

Geocentric Sea-level Trend Estimates from GPS Analyses at Relevant Tide Gauges World-wide

Technical Rating: star star
Woppelmann et al analyzed data from 160 GPS stations that were within 15 km of tide gauges to determine the vertical movement of the tide gauges. They determined that the global average sea-level rise from January 1999 to August 2005, after correcting the tide gauge data by the vertical land movement, was 1.31 mm/year.

Is Sea Level Rise Accelerating?

Technical Rating: star
The authors of this review paper summarize what is known about past and current rates of sea level rise. They report that "the geocentric rate of global mean sea level rise over the last decade (1993-2003) is +2.8 +/- 0.4 mm/yr, as determined from altimeter measurements," and that "this rate is significantly larger than the historical rate of sea level change measured by tide gauges during the past decades (in the range of 1-2 mm/yr)."
