Analysis of the Venice tide gauge record 1887-1908 and 1972-1979. The local rise in mean sea-level since 1872 amounts to 27 cm, of which at least 14 cm are related to excessive jumping of Water from underground sources. Another rise of about 12 cm in the average level of acqua alta can be ascribed to recent artificial morphological changes. In addition to this increasing trend, there is a 20 to 30 cms wide oscillation shown for the first time over a period of 18,6 years related to the lunar declination cycle.
