Sea level network

European Sea Level Observing sites are primarily tide gauges providing continuous measurements of the sea level relative to a well monitored benchmark on land. Some of these tide gauges are located with geodetic techniques such as continuous Global Positioning System (cGPS), and in some cases episodic absolute gravity measurements are performed. Operation of the sites is made according to GLOSS standards.

The sites listed below were chosen under the ESEAS-RI project to be ESEAS Observing Sites, as the organisations that maintain these sites were committed to the ESEAS.

There are many other tide gauges in Europe which could contribute to a European Sea Level System. A catalogue of known sites was a deliverable of the EU TRANSFER (Tsunami Risk ANd Strategies For European Region) project, and this would form the basis to expand the European Sea Level portal.

Map of European Sea Level sites

During the ESEAS RI project standard metadata including site history information was agreed and compiled. The site histories available are provided in the table below which lists those sites that were part of the ESEAS project.
