A major reassessment of 18 years of satellite observations has provided a new, more detailed view of sea-level change around the world.
Incorporating the data from a number of spacecraft, the study re-affirms that ocean waters globally are rising by just over 3mm/yr.
But that figure, according to the reassessment, hides some very big regional differences - up and down. The Philippine Sea , for example, has seen increases in excess of 10mm/yr.
