By Andy May In Part 1 of this series, we examined the data and analysis that was presented in AR6 to support their conclusion that sea level rise is accelerating. In Part 2 we looked at a serious examination of the observational record for sea level rise over the past 120 years and the modeledContinue reading “AR6 and Sea Level, Part 3, A Statistically Valid Forecast”
By Andy May Thomas Frederikse and colleagues published a study of sea level data, considering both tide gauges and satellite data in 2020 (Frederikse, et al., 2020). This paper is frequently cited in the Chapter 9 AR6 sea level discussion. They found that there are many causes of global and regional sea level change thatContinue reading “AR6 and Sea Level, Part 2: The complexity of measuring GMSL”
