Rapid Changes in Coastal Sea Level

Nils-Axel Morner

Abstract


The changes in coastal sea-level position are the combined functions of the changes in ocean level and inland level. The rates and amplitudes of the parameters involved are estimated and combined into a comparative graph. The main division is between more continual and longer-term processes and the instantaneous variables like seismotectonics and tsunamis.
