Is “sea level” the same around the world?

    Because sea level is an average of the varying heights of the ocean’s surface, it is the same all over the world. Sea level measurements are averaged between low and high tide and between the changes in depth caused by wind and waves. When a mountain is described as rising a certain number of feet above sea level, it is not exactly that number of feet above to waters at its nearest shore. It is that much higher than the average level of the ocean.
