This image shows regional patterns of sea level change, as observed by Topex and Jason 1 satellites during the period 1993-2007.

World-wide changes in sea level over decades to centuries caused by the addition of water from the melting of glacial ice and/or thermal expansion of sea water due to global warming.

A NOAA website Sea Levels Online has graphs of sea level data for many coastal locations around the country over the last 40 to 50 years and projections into the future.
