The recognition of the present pattern of sea levels has been made more and more difficult from the definition of procedures and methods that generate estimations of a global mean sea level (GMSL). This GMSL is weekly related to what is actually measured by tide gauges and satellite altimeters. This GMSL is strongly dependent to ‘calibrations’ of subjective nature and it seems rather to be a product of computation than a true measurement. This problem is highlighted with a couple of case… Expand
