MET OFFICE FACTSHEET MISLEADING ON SEA LEVEL TIDE GAUGE DATA

Sharing is caring!

Check out the display screen seize of the factsheet under and there may be the next: “UK tide gauge information present substantial year-to-year adjustments in coastal water ranges (usually a number of
centimetres
). We suggest that coastal determination makers account for this variability in danger
assessments, significantly for shorter-term planning horizons.”

You may enlarge the above display screen seize for simpler studying, or go to the hyperlink. I’ve written to the Met Workplace to ask in the event that they consider this to be right and am ready for a response. 

Beneath is the document for Portsmouth, and whereas it’s true to say that there’s yr to yr variability of a number of centimetres, that is each up and down and, when it’s averaged out, the precise rise is far decrease (solely round 2mm). So what level are they attempting to make? May or not it’s to provide the impression that sea stage is rising by “a number of centimetres” a yr?
