Sea level trends, Norway

Trends in sea level (mm/year) since 1960 along the coast of Norway. The bars display the observed sea level relative to land; red (blue) colors show stations with sea level rise (fall). The symbols show sea level in the open ocean (ignoring land uplift). The horisontal line indicates a mean sea level of 2.7 mm/year off the coast of Norway. Only stations with at least 30 years of annual mean data between 1960-2011 are included in the analysis.

See Richter et. al. (2012) for an analysis of observed variations in the sea level along the Norwegian coast for the period 1960-2010.

Tide gauge observations, Norway

Observed change of annual mean sea level for Norway relative to land (base perod is 1961-2010). The grey line displays the linear trend since 1960 (or more recently if continuous data are not present back to 1960) with the associated linear slope in mm per year shown in the lower left corner of the panels. Latest year is given in the upper right corner. Map of the stations here.
