The name "MetaSUB" may present you with mystery in the sense that "meta" is a realm but so is "sub", so we could just take a look at its "about" or we could take a look at what MetaSUB does:

"The very first study [link] from what has grown into the MetaSUB team demonstrated that nearly half of the DNA from subway surfaces didn’t match any known organism. The data paint a picture of a diverse ecology that we know relatively little about, spanning the tree of life to include prokaryotes, fungi, eukaryotes, protists and viruses (mostly bacteriophages) adapted to live in our human-made spaces." 

(Metro Microbes: Microbiomes of Public Transit & Urban Spaces, emphasis added). I can't fathom how the largest population centers have been full of "mysto microbes" even during the fury of epidemics and pandemics:

"We sequenced DNA from surfaces across the entire New York City (NYC) subway system, the Gowanus Canal, and public parks. Nearly half of the DNA (48%) does not match any known organism"

(Afshinnekoo et al., 2015, Cell Systems 1, 72–87). But I can voice some suspicions, eh?

Regular readers know that Dredd Blog has urged "the powders that be" to make accident reconstruction a part of the curriculum of genetics studies:

"As I have indicated previously, the chaotic changes revealed in these appendices are indicative of the damage done by the Big Pharma war on anything that moves, more so than on the 'magic words' of pop Genieology (see On The Origin Of The Home Of COVID-19, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27).

In that series and others I have pointed out that the scene is like an accident or tornado damaged site with parts mixed with other good and bad parts.

New research supports that hypothesis indicating that mutualist microbes in us can be partially damaged but continue to replicate viruses, or worse" 

(It's In The GenBank - 2). Some available accident reconstruction classes could inform geneticists, for example: 

Traffic Crash Investigation & Reconstruction 

ACTAR Approved Training at IPTM 

Collision Reconstruction  

Accident Reconstruction Certification from SAE 

Accident Investigation Certificate Program 

(To name a tiny few). I have attached a particular video to multiple Dredd Blog posts that illustrates that "the powders that be" are at war with the microbial world like Russia on Ukraine, which is the indiscriminate killing of innocent microbes (see first video below).

They do this with little to no knowledge about what is taking place within those microbes they are indiscriminately killing (see second video below).

The MetaSub ("little yellow submarine"?) scientists, quoted above, who have begun to explore the cosmology of bus stations, have found that (kinda like If Cosmology Is "Off," How Can Biology Be "On?" - 2) "nearly half of the DNA from subway surfaces didn’t match any known organism".

Some will say "that proves aliens have taken over the cities" (Aliens Want The Law Changed So Their DNA That "Didn't Match Any Known Organisms" Is Privatized [16]/snark), and others will say nothing because their breath has been taken away (It's In The GenBank, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

Ups And Downs Of SLC

Sea level conundrums

Today's graphs show both the ups and downs of sea level change because that is closer to the scientific reality.

Unlike many of the descriptions of sea level change that use frivolous descriptions, the seriousness of sea level change becomes more real with specificity.

For example, "The Warming Science Commentariat" likes to use expressions such as "1.5 mm per year".

This fuzzy granularity they use is typically applied to the entire ocean, as if sea level change is like a bathtub with a universal "behavioral" pattern.

But they don't like to mention specifically where that change is happening, for how long that has been happening, or whether that change in sea level is a "fall" or a "rise".

Nevertheless, many tide gauge stations (documented at PSMSL) have in the past, and may at one time in their future experience sea level that is predominantly rising, but at another time they may experience sea level that is predominantly falling.

This especially applies to tide gauge stations within about two thousand kilometers of a Cryosphere location (e.g. Greenland, Antarctica, The Third Pole) as Dr. Mitrovica has pointed out ad nausem (see e.g. video below and Seaports With Sea Level Change - 20).

This has been a regular feature of Dredd Blog posts for years (see the "SEA LEVEL CHANGE" section on the "Series Posts (N-Z)" tab at the top of the blog page).


The graphs in today's appendices clearly show the rise and fall of sea level at various times at various tide gauge stations around the world (Appendix Links: A-C, D-G, H-O, P-T, U-Z).

An arbitrary time frame of 1800-2050 is utilized (actual measurements at tide gauge stations is sandwiched between the estimated past and estimated future of each location's in situ measurement records).

An important "take-home" from this is that accumulated sea level rise is brought into a more accurate understanding when we know how much time is involved in the "it has risen or fallen this much" figures.

The graphs in the appendices indicate how much change has taken place in three segments of time (before measurements, during measurements, and projected future amounts).

The time before a tide gauge station began recording changes in sea level, as well as the time following its most recent recorded changes, are calculated using the actual measured values records.

These before calculations and future calculations are "educated guesstimates", and are represented by different colored lines.

The before-recordings-of-change line is blue, the time-of-recordings line is green, and the estimated-future-change line is brown.

The "station number" is the PSMSL station number (lookup station info here); the "Zone" number is the WOD zone number; lookup zone number location info here).

Total change amounts in millimeters, feet, and/or inches are tallied (Note: in large mm change scenarios the upper left corner of the graph has an "(x103)" designation which means that the graph's millimeter values are in thousands).

Hopefully this gives a better picture and better concept of reality than the "1.5 mm per year" estimates that "the warming science commentariat" gives us.

UPDATE: I updated the graphs. The left side of the graphs which indicated "millimeters" had erroneous values. 

I have replaced them with "RLR millimeters" which is what the PSMSL uses (Revised Local Reference [RLR] Definition).

I have ordered the graphs by PSMSL Station Id so you can look them up here more easily.

Any that did not have at least 75 years of data were removed (guesstimates for "before measurements began" and "after measurements ended" are more accurate with an extended number of years to calculate with).
