Long sea level observation series from tide gauges continue to be an important source of information on vertical land motion. We are currently undertaking a review of Estonian tide gauge data. Sea level observations started in Tallinn in 1842. We have data from 29 locations, 9 of which are today operative, 18 span 40 years and 11 span 50 years or more. Estonia belongs to the margin of the rebound area, vertical rates relative to mean sea level are -2...+2 mm/yr. We describe the review, compare our provisional results with earlier computations, look how they fit into rebound maps of the whole Fennoscandian area, and discuss purely local movements.
