> in Hong Kong: 56 years of tide gauge records in the Victoria Harbour since 1954 demonstrate an unambiguous rise of the mean sea level during this period. There was a rapid rise of the sea level from 1990 to 1999 and a moderate decline thereafter. The trend is similar to that observed by satellite remote sensing over the South China Sea since the early 1990s and also tide gauge records at other coastal stations in the region. On average, the mean sea level in the Victoria Harbour has risen at a rate of 2.6 mm per year during the period 1954 to 2010.
