The following video shows all the PSMSL tide gauge data so you can search for a sea level rise acceleration. It replaces an earlier version that was taken down by youtube because of music license violations. This version has music with Creative Commons license. The text and data are the same as before.
Vermeer’s and Rahmstorf’s “Global sea level linked to global temperature” (PNAS, 2009) relied on Church’s and White’s “A 20th century acceleration in global sea-level rise” (GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH LETTERS, VOL. 33,) for their sea level data. Church and White built their sea level time series from the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) tide gauge data.
There is no attempt to analyse the data here, but I have started that process and will report on it later. The first two minutes may be a little boring, but please read along. It livens up later. For now, sit back and enjoy.
