    2 feet in a million... That's 0.058 feet on Mount Everest. 0.69 inches.

    It has a bigger effect on horizontal coordinates. NH state plane coordinates are around 500,000 Northing and 1,100,000 Easting.

    Since mountain elevation is related to mean ocean level, the lists will need to be redone sometime in the future if ocean rise calculations are correct

    Except for Everest. It's growing at about 0.2 inches per year, possibly enough to offset sea level rise.

    Elevations on the NGVD29 datum were tied to sea level, but the current NAVD88 elevations are tied to a benchmark called Rimouski on the St. Lawrence Seaway in Quebec. It is held as zero elevation. There is a new datum slated to come out in 2022, but it may be delayed.
