Description 
Summary

Hourly sea level data from many harbours, mainly along the Italian coasts, were processed from records given by other institutions or directly collected in a digital format from the original sources. Data validation methods were used; time series analysis and filtering techniques were used to compute the tidal components and residuals. Annual tide tables for Trieste are commonly prepared.
