Sea level data from Stockholm, with the initial year 1774, have been recalculated using old information hitherto not taken into account. Since the resultant series of annual mean sea levels is the longest continued one in the world, and of very good reliability, it is published here. Also some results on eustatic changes of sea level, due to changes of climate, are given.

Key words
