Description 
Summary

Recognizing the importance of the subject for the region, as well as its capability to serve as a model for the world-wide processes, the IOC and the Commission Internationale pour I Exploration Scientifique de la mer Mediterranee (CIESM) have agreed in 1996 to jointly cooperate in the study of this important subject by establishing a long term monitoring network system for systematic sea-level measurements in the Mediterranean and Black Seas. The system, named MedGLOSS (Mediterranean regional subsystem of the Global Sea Level Observing System), a monitoring network system for systematic measurements in the Mediterranean and Black Seas is being developed by applying basic GLOSS requirements and methodology, aiming to provide high-quality standardized data, which can then be directly applied for the various regional and worldwide studies. From 2010 to fulfill the objectives of NEAMTWS this tool and additional three were set to collect data every 1 minute. Collected in cooperation with the Department of Land Survey.
