zostoga


- global_average_sea_level_change
- unit [m]

a function only of time, zosga is the total change in global mean sea level, relative to some fixed distance from the center of the earth, due to thermosteric changes, water flux input from land/glaciers/atmosphere, and salinity influences on density.  If the model cannot be trusted to provide estimates of the water flux input from land/glaciers, there is no need to report zosga (since salinity influences are of secondary importance and the thermosteric contribution is reported by zostoga).  Note that to good approximation the difference between zostoga and zosga yields the global mean change in sea level due to water budget imbalances (presumably, resulting largely from changes in glacial mass).  Please note in the "comment" attribute any assumptions or methodological details related to calculation of this time-series.
