Description 
Summary

Network of 14 tide gauges located around the coast of Ireland collecting water level, oceanographic and meteorological data as part of the development of a permanent tidal monitoring infrastructure. Parameters collected include; Station (ID), dateTime (yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss), Water Level (Sea Level above Lowest Astronomical Tide [LAT], m) and Water Level (Water Level Ordnance Datum Malin Head, m). Sea Surface Temperature (degree Celsius) Atmospheric Pressure (mbar) Users of the download service can choose a gauge, time period, parameter(s) and output file type. Advanced downloads allow a user choose an Area of Interest (ie. more than one tide gauge) and depth value (ie. with tide gauge always '0') to download data. 11 of the network stations capture sea temperature measurements.
