i know NASA is generally disliked here but this explains rise and fall of sea levels and why we are in a "pothole" of sorts. sea levels have dropped recently but we will experience a "whiplash" effect and the general trend is toward rising levels.
"While the rise of the global ocean has been remarkably steady for most of this time, every once in a while, sea level rise hits a speed bump. This past year, it's been more like a pothole: between last summer and this one, global sea level actually fell by about a quarter of an inch, or half a centimeter.
So what's up with the down seas, and what does it mean? Climate scientist Josh Willis of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., says you can blame it on the cycle of El Niño and La Niña in the Pacific. "

Why don't you just post the information to back up your claim?
Or is that too hard for you to do?
Try and think about the people who live on these islands. Do you think they give a # whether the sea is rising or falling? They're losing their home no matter what!
