From the results obtained, we can say that anthropogenic greenhouse gases are mainly responsible of the sea-level change observed during the 20th century. Moreover, even tough the analysis of the Kolmogorov test indicates that the result of the test is not conclusive for GHG forcing, this forcing is most of the time closer to the observations. Then, the study of the repartitio of the contributors for each city demonstrated that thermosteric component and GIA arethe main drivers to sea-level change for the cities studied. The places more sensitive to sea-level change are Svalbard, North America, North Atlantic and the poles. That can be explained by the fact that locations are where the contribution of GIA and thermosteric are the most important.
