Here’s a thing 17:27 - Aug 4 with 1083 viewsenfieldargh

Is sea level the same the world over

Is the level of say the Black Sea and the pacific the same

The hawthorns is apparently the highest in England at so many metres above sea level

Is this compared to the nearest coastline or what

Am scratching my head

captains fantastic

Seas are connected so all will be the same level. Somewhere like a lake could be higher or lower.

Tempted to do the old Brendan Rodgers trick with this thread - write down five things I think will happen and pop them in an envelope, open them at the end of the season to see if I'm right.

What’s on your list:

Tides/gravity/ pull of the moon/tilt on axis
Poles
Lakes/lochs/ponds at different levels

Then of course is the actual fact that the earth is flat, they can’t trick me with those maps and proof

No. Sea levels are uneven mainly due to Ocean dynamics and the Earth's uneven gravitational field.

I seem to remember from a friends father who used to calculate tides for sailors that it's always average sea level, I think over several years, with each country having its own sea level. Think the UK's is measured in Cornwall but it maybe Devon at the old Naval docks.

My thoughts on sea level. Not really the same as gravity varies around the globe (which isn't a perfect sphere anyway) and this affects the difference between Mean sea Level and the Geoid. Gravimetery and Mean sea Level observations are used along with other sources, increasingly from space, in complex mathematical functions to best map the Geoid, which is the shape formed by the gravity field. A long time since I studied all this, and could go on, but hope my attempt at a summary helps?

In UK, Mean Sea Level is nominally based on observations at Newlyn, Cornwall and that is a reference point for OS Mapping, It has been that way for many years.

Sea levels might be uneven but sure 'Sea Level' will be the same everywhere?

By providing such an intelligent and reasoned response so quickly you have ruined this thread. Not one single pun!

I have the solution for global warming. Desalination.

As temperatures increase, the ice belts melt so if we suck the increased water out of the sea, desalinate it, not only do we bring the sea level back to where it was, we have water for everyone.

Were flat roofed pubs designed for members of the flat earth society or as we think the filth from North Battersea? And are all the roofs of the same level?

I had the job of measuring sea levels all around the world once.

I was flat out every day

Apparently, if you are six feet tall and you stand at the waters edge, the horizon will be ten miles away.
Not a lot of people know that.

And apparently….. if you're stranded in the middle of the desert and decide to head for the horizon to find water, and you are right footed, after 20 miles you will have veered off to the left so far, you'll have ended up where you started.
Not a lot of people know that either.

To get back to the OP's question, as ever, the estimable "More or Less" from BBC Radio 4 has the answer:

So, because the surface of the Earth is not flat, the surface of the ocean is not flat, so the surface of the sea changes at different rates around the globe - so the absolute water level height is higher along the West Coast of the UK than the East Coast.

Going, politics now, UN reports refer to a “global sea level,” which refers to the average height of all of the Earth's ocean basins, and as a result of reports too many to mention, global warming people sometimes refer to "Global sea level rise' ie, an increase in the average global sea level trend.

Hope this helps.
