Short summary
Based on the latest satellite observations published by the French space agency CNES, we present the current state of the sea level at the scale of the planet and assess its rise and acceleration over the past 29 years. To support scientific research we provide updated estimations of our confidence in our estimations and highlight key technological and scientific fields. Making progress on that will help to better characterize the sea level in the future.
