Abstract

Non-linear sea level trend in the South China Sea (SCS) was investigated by means of satellite altimetry and tide gauge data over 24 years period from 1993 to 2016. GIA corrections and inverted barometer corrections were applied to the satellite and tide gauge data, and the monthly sea level anomalies (MSLAs) were compared between each other in details. Thirty tide gauges located in the SCS are in good agreement with satellite-derived results, with RMSDs ranging between 0.85 and 9.92 cm and correlation coefficients were more than 0.70 for 85.71% of stations. Non-linear sea level trend of observations during period of 1993-2016 was analysed by empirical mode decomposition, the sea level rise rate derived from satellite altimetry and tide gauge data are 4.29 ± 0.29 and 3.93 ± 0.12 mm/year, respectively.
