more info....thanks to tree's link & the great info it contained i found something really interesting = Mantle Plumes ......Mantle Plumes impinging on the underside of tectonic plates can 'drastically' alter the topography of the ocean floor. & whats more they dont have to be at subduction zones etc...they can be 'anywhere'....still even Plate Tetonics is only an 'accepted' THEORY so we shouldnt get too cocky hey?

Yes but what is drastically? Is it a sudden rise of 328ft in say a year. Now that would be a drastic, in geological terms, event. See but even then that took nearly 4 years to finish building and the sesmic activity was recorded around the world.

Look it is physically impossible for the earth/crust/mantle to jump 328ft without a record of sesmic activity taking place in the area of the supposed rise. The Earths crust isn't a zit that suddenly erupts into a 328ft pimple overnight. The recording device is faulty.

100m less distance between seafloor and buoy in 24 days. Where has all the displaced water gone? Am I missing something in that article/post thing? If not then its a load of crap. And WW is correct.

The buoy is very likely to be faulty.

I have had a look at the minute by minute data and there are times when the "water column" goes up / down by a meter or more in just a couple of minutes. There are large gaps of data missing - all in all it's not a dataset that would inspire a lot of confidence.
“No. Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise” ...

And this of course applies to scientific principles. Never compromise these. Never! [Follow the science and you will be shown correct in the end...]
