The following diagram shows the sea level rise from 1992 to date. The increase of the sea level is 3 to 4 mm per year.
Short variations in the sea level rise are the result of ▸El Niño and La Niña, especially 1997/1998, 2010/2011 and 2015/2016.
While sea levels rise slowly for a variety of reasons, they do not do so in the same way across the oceans. There are also regions where the water level has declined overall since 1993. The following graphic shows the global changes resolved locally. In the south-east of the Pacific in particular, only a very small rise in sea level has been observed so far. In areas of the northern Pacific and the northern North Atlantic, subsidence even occurs.
