University of Colorado satellite altimetry shows sea level increases much higher than tide guages. East of the Philippines they show greater than 10 mm/year in a region where tide gauges show little or no sea level rise.
Below, I overlaid the NOAA tide gauge data on that region.The gauge at Guam is going down, while CU reports 10 mm/year. The arrow at Chuuk is rising only 0.6 mm/year and is shown in the 9.0+ region of the CU map.
Looks to me like the satellite altimetry data is not accurate, and probably should not be quoted before Congress.
