A very interesting article. It combines the effects of global sea level rise, local land subsidence, lower drag on tidal surges, etc into one consistent whole.

The total result of which shows that local preparations for sea level rise should not minimize the problem since locally the rise may have much larger effects than the average.

There no dithering about sea level, which according to the best available measurements has risen by about 7 inches in the 20th century, with the rise accelerating since the early 1990s.

Satellites trace sea level change
Scientists have reviewed almost two decades of satellite data to build a new map showing the trend in sea levels. Globally, the oceans are rising, but there have been major regional differences over the period.

P.S. Deniers mess with these regional differences because of their ignorance.
