Seaports With Sea Level Change - 8

The Cryosphere (areas within the Cyan colored lines)
SLF Seaport locations (red squares)
This post supplements Seaports With Sea Level Change - 6 by adding sea level change (SLC) graphs to match the details presented in that post.

The appendices listed in that post are re-listed in the table below, however, an additional column contains links to graphs of the same countries and ports featured in that post.

It adds another dimension when readers can see not only the numbers indicating SLC at those locations over the years, but to also see a graph of those numbers.

The following table has the links to the countries with their seaports and with their SLC data (countries are listed alphabetically):

Graphs of those

The patterns on the graphs vary significantly due to quantity of in situ measurements at the zone level.

I am considering a future post with graphs at the coastline code level (a larger area) which will smooth some of them out.

Some countries have coasts on the Pacific, Atlantic, and Gulf of Mexico, others have only one coastline on one ocean area.

Additionally, these graphs are at the millimeter level so the appearance would lead one to think these are radical changes, but they are not really (the "RLR mm" value is explained here).

But the wavy up and downs remind us that the ocean is not a bath tub.

The next post in this series is here, the previous post in this series is here.
