Figure 11.7: Time-series
of relative sea level for the past 300 years from Northern Europe: Amsterdam,
Netherlands; Brest, France; Sheerness, UK; Stockholm, Sweden (detrended over the
period 1774 to 1873 to remove to first order the contribution of postglacial rebound);
Swinoujscie, Poland (formerly Swinemunde, Germany); and Liverpool, UK. Data for
the latter are of “Adjusted Mean High Water” rather than Mean Sea Level
and include a nodal (18.6 year) term. The scale bar indicates ±100 mm.
