A lot of scientists, including a lot of Americans, are skeptical of the idea that climate change is causing a surge in global sea levels.
Yet many in the public and business communities are now looking to sea level data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to assess the effects of climate change and its impacts on coastal communities.
What do we know about sea level?
NOAA data shows that global sea level is rising at a rate faster than any other time in the past 4 million years, a rate that is expected to continue increasing at a rapid rate.
Sea level in many places has already exceeded the level of the oceans at the time of the last ice age about 3 million years ago.
The rate of change over time is not linear, but rather has a long-term trend, NOAA says.
The rate of sea level change has accelerated since the late 1990s, but has remained steady since then.
The NOAA report, “Sea Level Rise and Flood Risk in the United States and the United Kingdom: An Analysis of Current and Predicted Future Sea Level Rise,” is based on data from several sources.
For example, NOAA’s Coastal and Regional Research Program uses data from tide gauges and tide stations around the world.
The agency also includes data from various other sources, including the Global Land Surface Temperature (GLST) and the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI).
The GLST and NCEI provide data that is different than the tide data, and NOAA says that it takes a variety of factors into account when determining how much sea level there is at any given time.
While some of the GLST data shows a relatively steady increase in sea level since the early 20th century, some of that increase has been driven by changes in the way that the earth’s oceans absorb and transport heat, which could mean that there has been a rise in the rate of global warming.
In fact, the NCEA has been working on new ways to measure the rate at which the earth is warming.
For example, the National Climate Assessment, an annual assessment of global climate, includes the National Climatic Data Center’s (NCDC) sea level temperature dataset, which is an extension of the sea level gauge.
This new sea level dataset shows a steady increase over the past century.
The NCEP also uses data collected by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the world’s largest independent climate data center, which measures temperature at sea level at different points around the globe.
The NCER data also show a relatively small increase in the rates of sea-level rise since the end of the ice age, which was about 10 millimeters (0.6 inches) per year.
“There are still uncertainties in the data, but the trend appears to be fairly steady over the last century,” said Eric Sonders, director of the Climate Prediction Center at the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
The data are also very reliable, but not very good.
There is a lot more uncertainty in the NceR data than the GLSC, and the NSC is not yet a great instrument.
It has a lower resolution than the NHC or the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), which is more accurate than the NOAA GISS data.
But there are a lot other differences between the two.
For instance, the GISS dataset has been measuring sea level for decades and is more reliable than the other data sets.
And the NMFS and GISS both measure global sea-levels on land, whereas NOAA uses measurements of sea levels off the coast of California.
As for the sea levels in the US, it appears that the rate has increased at an even faster rate than in the previous ice ages, which happened around 3 million to 3.5 million years before humans arrived.
But the rate was also relatively stable, the NOAA report said.
How much sea-Level rise are we talking about?
NOAA’s report says that sea level rises have been rising at about 1.3 millimeters per year for the last 10,000 years, or roughly 0.2 inches per year over the same time period.
The National Center of Atmospheric Research is currently collecting data on sea level changes around the Earth, including how fast sea levels have risen and fallen.
The NOAA report also shows a fairly steady rate of increase in global ocean temperatures, with the rate increasing at an average rate of 0.4 degrees Celsius (0-1.5 degrees Fahrenheit) per decade.
That is slightly faster than the rate that the global average rate is increasing, which has been about 0.3 degrees Celsius per decade, or about 1 degree Fahrenheit per decade since the industrial revolution.
But, scientists have been predicting that sea levels will continue to rise at a pace faster than this, and they are looking at how much rise is actually occurring.
