NASA and a dip in Sea Level Rise

Russ Steele

Is this sea level rise?  NASA thinks that this is just a dip in the rise to higher sea level rise.  Why? What could have caused this sharp departure from the trend? It looks like the La Niña of 2011 is about to become the La Niña of 2012. Which, according to the NASA analysis should result in an additional drop in sea level, until the rain finds it’s way back to the sea. But, what if it is trapped in a snow pack some where?

More details here. Note where some of that extra rain fell as snow.

    I kinda hate to point of the obvious but everything including water I believe contracts as it gets colder. Water does not change temp as quickly as air but as it does wouldn’t that make sense, other than the fact that water expand sas it freezes but until that point makes sense to me.
