Observations from the Andaman Islands: “Re your item on raising sea levels and climate – Evidence News 08/09 5th August 2009: As a missionary who works in The Andaman Islands each year I am aware that the land in South Andaman (South of Port Blair) sank by over 80cm during the Force 9 earthquake that preceded the Boxing Day tsunami in 2004. In North Andaman (around Diglipur) the land rose by 1.2 metres. All the sea charts have had to be rewritten as a result of the tectonic shift and rising and falling seabed in the area. (I have a chart from beforehand if anyone wants to do a comparison.)
Does anyone know if this apparent “sea rise” is part of the statistical information that is being misused to claim that the seas are rising worldwide?”
