The basic information of mean sea level data of all tidal monitoring stations in Korea was reviewed, and the correlation coefficients between the stations were analyzed. Mean sea level changes expected due to global climate change effects were found to show a high correlation of more than 0.75 regardless of the distance between the stations were analyzed. The data between certain stations were found to have negative correlation and low correlation of 0.25 or less, but this was determined by the

However, since these correlations assume a linear increase and a linear relationship, the estimation results may be distorted for data with fluctuating trends that deviate from this assumption. Based on the results of the changing patterns of the MSL data, it shows that a number of the MSL data do not follow the linear trend.
