The sea level data was taken from multi-satellite altimetry, they are Topex/Poseidon, Jason-1, and Jason-2. The period of data started from 1993 until 2015.Preliminary data processing of satellite altimetry was done by global test and post-processing of satellite altimetry data. The sea level rise analysis done by linear regression methods. Linear regression formula of sea level rise in West Sumatra Waters during the period was  y = 1.586 + 0.0000113x. The change of sea level during period 1993 until 2015 was 3.394 cm with mean sea level rise value was 1.35 mm/year
