Summary

The MedGLOSS project is run under the aegis of the CIESM (International Commission for the Scientific Exploration of the Mediterranean Sea) and IOC, and targets to establish a network of real-time monitoring stations for the systematic measurement of sea level in the Mediterranean and Black seas, as a component of the GOOS.
