Links to Church and White sea level data

May 9, 2011

I have written several posts about Church and White Sea level data and how it pertains t Rahmstorf sea level models. 

It seems the Permanent Site for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) page for Church and White has eliminated the link for the 2009 version of Church and White data when it added the link for the 2011 version of their data.  As of today, the PSMSL still archives the 2009 data, but does not provide the link.

Just so there will be no confusion, I will provide several links for each of the 2006, 2009, and 2011 versions of the Church and White data.

2006 version

  • Abstract for associated paper: “A 20th century acceleration in global sea-level rise,” GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH LETTERS, VOL. 33, L01602, 4 PP., 2006  doi:10.1029/2005GL024826
  • Full PDF version of associated paper: “A 20th century acceleration in global sea-level rise,” GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH LETTERS, VOL. 33, L01602, 4 PP., 2006 doi:10.1029/2005GL024826
  • Sea level data archived at PSMSL (Columns: time, Global Mean Sea Level in mm, One-sigma error in mm)
  • Sea level data archived at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).  This is a Zip file containing “church_white_grl_gmsl.txt” (Columns: time, Global Mean Sea Level in mm, One-sigma error in mm)
  • Sea level data archived by me on 4/27/11. 

The above three archives of the 2006 version of Church and White sea level data were identical as of 4/27/11. 

2009 version

  • This version did not have an associated paper.  There used to be a link and a short explanation at the PSMSL page for Church and White, but both are now gone.  But the data still exists as of 4/27/11.
  • Sea level data archived at PSMSL (Columns: time, Global Mean Sea Level in mm, One-sigma error in mm)
  • Sea level data archived by me on 4/27/11.

The above two archives of the 2009 version of Church and White sea level data were identical as of 4/27/11.

2011 version

  • Full PDF version of associated paper: “Sea-level rise from the late 19th to the early 21st Century.” Surveys in Geophysics, (2011)
  • Sea level data archived at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). This is a Zip file containing 9 files.  “aa_read_me.txt” explains the contents of the other 8 files, which include text and comma separated value files of satellite altimeter monthly and yearly data and monthly and yearly versions Church’s and White’s reconstruction.
  • Sea level data in the form of the same Zip file as above, but archived by me.
  • The 9 individual files from the Zip file
