Rising of the sea level on break?

Let’s go back to talking about the ascent of the sea level.

For two and a half years now, the long pause in the global rise of the sea has continued to be underlined. We are keen to underline the global scale, since on a regional and local scale the eustatic changes are normal, not considering the component of climate change.

The break we are talking about began during the summer of 2015 and continues today, during this period the highest values recorded were 84.7mm in March 2016 and 84.8 in the summer of 2017, the lowest values 77.7mm were registered in August and September 2016, (data released by nasa.gov).

The latest survey, which dates back to October 9, 2017, recorded a rise of 82.8 mm, with a rise rate of 3.2 mm / yr, compared to the previous 3.4 mm / yr.

These interruptions are not rare, something similar occurred between the end of 2010 and the middle of 2012 and 1998.
