Sea level rise in Australia

  1. Two years ago I took a close look at the coastal measuring data. Each station was measured for altitude variation using the GPS satellites and the data was corrected for atmospheric pressure. The only probable error that occurred to me was correction for the elevation of the actual satellites. I roughly checked for the effect of water from agricultural aquifers and the Caspian Sea but that could not account for any significant fraction of the overall sea level increase of about 3mm per year for 15 years.
    Ocean temperature increase I consider unlikely. If air temperature increases the evaporation rate increases and more energy is extracted from the oceans.
