It is generally accepted that the determination of a trend in a sea level record is only possible when a long time series of observed elevations over many years is available. The small magnitude of the trend on the one hand, and the perturbation of the record by systematic noise over a wide range of frequencies on the other, determine that this is so. In the context of sea level trend analysis, the word ‘Noise’ can be considered to apply to any feature present in the observed record which…

Sea-level rise is one of the most important consequences of global warming, and has global and regional im-pacts. Studying changes in sea level on a regional scale is essential to the development of
Establishing relative sea level trends where a coast lacks a long term tide gauge
Vulnerability assessment of coastal areas to projected sea level rise requires incorporation of historic trends in relative sea level change as an exposure factor. Most shorelines of developing

Abstract. The spatial and temporal distribution of sea-level rise has the potential to cause regional flooding in certain areas, and low-lying island countries are severely at risk. Tuvalu, an atoll

Research has demonstrated that at many sites in Southeastern Australia, there have been changes in the extent of mangrove and saltmarsh communities over the past five decades. In particular, this has
