The analysis of continuous sea-level records at the coastal stations is direct and should be one of the most reliable means of assessing secular coastal movement in the vertical. However, limitations in the traditional techniques used to obtain raw data, and the existence of sea-level variations due to oceanographic and meteorological phenomena require more than a simple univariate regression analysis for best results. Some examples from situations in western Europe will be given which have a bearing upon the subsidence of southeast England.
