6 Full Years of Dropping Sea Level!!

The last time I posted Envisat’s sea level, I was criticized as selectively displaying certain dates so as to manipulate the outcome.  Cherry picking.  Specifically, my dates weren’t full cycle and I didn’t include the seasonal adjustment as offered by  Aviso.  In part, this was a true and legitimate criticism.  I only had the data I could work with, so I was hamstrung as to what could and couldn’t be shown.  And today, I’m still cherry picking, in a manner of speaking.  I acknowledge what the total Envisat record shows, in fact, I’ll display it……image

And, once again, I’m not utilizing any “corrections” offered.  The GIA is so intellectually dishonest, I won’t be embarrassed by including it.  As shown before, the seasonal corrections Aviso offers is in error.  They also offer a “Inverted barometer correction”, but I have as yet to be able to find a legitimate reason to include it.  Given Aviso’s track record of corrections, I’ll opt to omit it until someone can convince me the correction is legitimate and Aviso’s handling of such a correction can be trusted.  In the mean time, we’ll have to wade through with actual measurements……. even after being tuned to our Jasons. 

As we can see, there is, indeed, a seasonal signal.  As the duration lengthens the seasonal signal becomes less significant.  Fortunately, I can include the most current data, and go back and retrieve data that completes the cycle.  In other words, there would be no seasonal signal to differentiate.  2011.862646 is the date (and time) of the most recent measurement.  So, all I have to do is go back in time several cycles and show what is currently happening!  I can go back to 2005.865479.  This is six full cycles, so there is no seasonal adjustment to be made. 


I would also like to point something out while we’re here.  Look at the first measurement on this graph and then look at the second.  The second has a date-stamp of 2005.889387.  As noted the first date is 316 days into 2005.  The next measurement was 324 days into the year.  In 8 days the global sea level jumped 3.3mm.  Disappointed smile     Apparently, there are corrections, and then, there are corrections.

    I actually felt that jump…didn’t you? LOL

    Internets being wonky again…I’m connected, then I’m not.
    Been doing this for a few weeks to everyone down here.

      lol, yeh, I was on a boat when it happened! It was a 3mm tsunami that never subsided!!!

      The crap they pass off and people accept for fact……… even according to Envisat, the largest 6 month divergence is ~2.5 centimeters…… or 4 mm/month…. but it did that in a week…… not. Even the seasonal divergence is overstated….. here’s a quiz, why aren’t the measurements evenly spaced to time?

      I hate that crap when the internets do that!

      • Latitude says:

        I’ll be nice and say it’s because of the orbits………

        I’m still connected right now, got the work done….so I’m cruising until it goes out again

  2. Look Mr. Sexton, what are you going to believe, Al Gore or graphs?

  3. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    James – I’d meant to say in the previous sea level post Thursday that you could potentially fit a sine curve to the Colorado graph.

    I’ve not tried it myself but since the 64-odd year sinusoidal cycles in the AMO, PDO, HadCRUT v3 and ENSO it’d be a reasonable hypothesis to conclude there’s a similar effect in the sea level data. Trouble being the CU data only runs for a third of the 64 years so far.

    • suyts says:

      Right, but the CU data is conflated with 3 different data sets. But, it would be reasonable to assume the sea levels would cycle with the oscillating events.

    You are making me sea sick just talking about all the waves in the sea level.
    The BEST data you can get from the satellites is a model output based on observations. Sort of like Global temperature data from the satellites.

    • suyts says:

      Yeh, I’m banging on it pretty hard, but that’s only because the lunatics are bringing up sea level and ice free this and that on certain sites.

      And, like I said, the timing is such that there is no seasonal signal. For another year, the tail will have to follow the head to remove the signal, so 6 years is what we’ll have until this time next year.
