Regularities of seasonal variations of the Global Sea Level (GSL) based on satellite altimeter data for the years 19932008 are discussed. Two prediction models of GSL seasonal variations are offered: a deter-ministic model as the sum of the trend and GSL annual harmonic and an adaptive model of linear increase with additive seasonality. Considered are the results of testing and experiment forecasts of monthly averaged GSL values based on independent data for 2005-2008 period. It is shown that by 2013 GSL may increase 1314 mm compared to the one in 2009.
