Tide Gauges and Global Sea Level Rise

The University of Hawaii (http://uhslc.soest.hawaii.edu/) has a series of tide gauge records that can be used to look at the spatial patterns of sea level rise.  We got these files a very long time ago, and there has been a lot of work in this area since then.

Map of the US showing the rate of sea level rise. 

Plot, Color code by DB field and Color code by numeric field

Negative values imply drops in sea level.

Plot, Color code by DB field and positive/negative.
  • Yellow have change in sea level less than 2 mm/yr,
  • Red had drop in sea level more than 2 mm/year
  • Green had rise in sea level more than 2 mm/year
Tidal record, time series.

Consider the geologic and plate tectonic settings, and how they might correlate with the sea level rise.
