“Abstract We estimate the rise in global average sea level from satellite altimeter data for 1993–2009 and from coastal and island sea-level measurements from 1880 to 2009. For
1993–2009 and after correcting for glacial isostatic adjustment, the estimated rate of rise is 3.2 ± 0.4 mm year-1 from the satellite data and 2.8 ± 0.8 mm year-1 from the in situ data. The global average sea-level rise from 1880 to 2009 is about 210 mm. The linear trend from 1900 to 2009 is 1.7 ± 0.2 mm year-1 and since 1961 is 1.9 ± 0.4 mm year-1. There is considerable variability
in the rate of rise during the twentieth century but there has been a statistically significant acceleration
since 1880 and 1900 of 0.009 ± 0.003 mm year-2 and 0.009 ± 0.004 mm year-2, respectively. Since the start of the altimeter record in 1993, global average sea level rose at a rate near the upper end
of the sea level projections of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Third and Fourth Assessment Reports.
However, the reconstruction indicates there was little net change in sea level from 1990 to 1993, most likely as a result of the volcanic eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991”.Global sea level linked to global temperature

“We propose a simple relationship linking global sea-level variations on time scales of decades to centuries to global mean temperature. This relationship is tested on synthetic data from a global climate model for the past millennium and the next century. When applied to observed data of sea level and temperature for 1880–2000, and taking into account known anthropogenic hydrologic contributions to sea level, the correlation is >0.99, explaining 98% of the variance. For future global temperature scenarios of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fourth Assessment Report, the relationship projects a sea-level rise ranging from 75 to 190 cm for the period 1990–2100.

“We show that for the 1993–2007 time span, the sum of climate-related contributions (2.85 ± 0.35 mm year?1) is only slightly less than altimetry-based sea level rise (3.3 ± 0.4 mm year?1): 30% of the observed rate of rise is due to ocean thermal expansion and 55% results from land ice melt. “THE GLOBAL SEA LEVEL OBSERVING SYSTEM (GLOSS)
Rates of sea-level change over the past century in a geocentric reference frame

“The sea level trends obtained in the ITRF2005 reference frame are more consistent than in the ITRF2000 or corrected for Glacial-Isostatic Adjustment (GIA) model predictions, both on the global and the regional scale, leading to a reconciled global rate of geocentric sea level rise of 1.61 ± 0.19mm/yr over the past century in good agreement with the most recent estimate”
Sorry Ufox the the majority consensus science in peer reviewed journals again defeats you! I could give many more papers to prove this contention!
Ufox you dill, measurements over short time frames
like 30 months
mean nothing!You need to look at long term trends
of at least 25 years or longer! Sadly like the other climate skeptic dills on flounders you do not know the difference between weather and climate!! No hope for you it appears! Back to "poetry"!
or metal detector design for beginners!
