Abstract
The paper discusses a claim of variable subsidence rate of -2 to -4 mm per year for the Fremantle tide gauge (TG). It is shown as the GPS monitoring is still progressing, and far from delivering accurate subsidence rates of inland domes far from the TG location with relative motion unassessed. It is also shown as the TG signal of Fremantle shows natural oscillations of the relative sea levels up to a quasi-60 years’ multi-decadal periodicity about a constant trend SLR,R of about +1.7 mm/year over more than one century. It is concluded that the most likely subsidence rate of the TG instrument VLM is -1.7 mm/year and constant.
