New study finds sea levels rising only 7 in. per century – with no acceleration

he authors write that “satellite altimetry measurements since 1993 have provided unique information about changes in global and regional mean sea levels,” suggesting a mean rate of rise of 3.2 mm/yr for global sea level over the period 1993-2012 (Boening et al., 2012; Cazenave et al., 2012), which “notably exceeds the estimate of 1.8 mm/yr sea level rise for the 20th century (Bindoff et al., 2007).”
