Review paper, ESA Symposium on Application of Satellite Data to Climate Modelling. Alpbach (Austria) \ud Sea level is an essential component of the climate\ud system, on which many human activities in the\ud coastal zone depend. Climate variations leading\ud to changes in relative sea level are discussed,\ud with some emphasis on the possible effects of a\ud carbon dioxide warming. Variations in land ice\ud volume are probably most important. Suggestions\ud are given of how future satellite data may help\ud in monitoring and understanding of global\ud variations in sea level
