"The more important it is to anchor any interpretation on firm observational facts. There are no successful shortcuts to be found in simple statistics or modeling; such attempts rather lead to misleading statements. Undoubtedly, the truth of what is going on with the sea level is to be found in Nature itself (certainly not at the desk in front of a computer). The interpretation of what is recorded in the field must be done with utmost skill and deep knowledge in all the variables possibly involved. During the past centuries, the present and the near-future sea level changes will be dominated by three main variables; glacial eustasy, thermal expansion and redistribution of water masses, all of which can be handles as to rates and amplitudes." Professor Nils-Axel Morner, international authority on sea levels.
