It is well confirmed that sea level is rising in all parts of the world’s ocean. A common global value often quoted is 3 mm / year. However a fundamental question is if these changes are global or regional and if these observed sea level changes exhibit an acceleration (i.e. due to the accelerating melting of the icecaps) of if the sea level height changes are decelerating._x000D_ _x000D_ The aim is to use satellite altimetry over the past 20 years to study changes in sea level with the aim to quantify the accuracy with which the trends can be determined and also to investigate if potential accelerations / decelerations exists and with which accuracy these can be determined._x000D_ _x000D_ _x000D_ UddGeofysikogrumteknologi_x000D_ FagormJordensfysikogressourcer_x000D_ FagomrMiljøogklimaovervågning_x000D_ _x000D_ UddElektroteknologi_x000D_ FagomrSpacetechnology_x000D_ FagomrJordobservation_x000D_ Space Technology
