Satellite Sea Level Data Is Crap

The reason that some satellites show a rise in sea level is because of a “hot spot” north of Australia which skews their numbers way up. Tide gauge data from the region shows nothing of the sort.

    The globe in that region is gaining weight or it represents the Middle Age Slump towards the waist.
    There is another possibility!!!!! I understand the Aussies like BEER and we all know what a BEER Belly looks like!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Mike Davis says:

      Seeing how it is below the waist and to the rear, I think less sitting and more exercise is called for by the citizens of that region!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Bob Tisdale summarises the latest NODC ocean heat content data over at Anthony’s.

    No increase since 2003.

    Anyone believing a satellite can accurately measure a body of fluid in constant motion to a tenth of a millimeter is smoking something more than hemp.

    This is strikingly similar to the ‘Russian maneuver’, which appears to be one means by which the surface temperature averages are raised.

    Parts of Scandinavia are rising 11mm a year due to glacial rebound.

    Could some of the tectonic plates be rising?

    Or is it just crap software … or even worse, the equivalent of Hanson’s Artic?
