Task 4.3

Harmonized sea level data flow

Lead: NERC-NOC (Lesley Rickards)

This task will develop a comprehensive South Atlantic sea level observing site catalogue (including sensors, benchmarks, maps and images) [D4.1] [ NERC-NOC] building on the IOC GLOSS Station Handbook and European Sea Level Service Observing Site specification. We will implement delayed mode quality control, documentation and secure archiving of data from 30-50 South Atlantic tide gauge sites to unify the quality of Atlantic sea level data. The task will also develop a harmonised data management plan [D4.2] [NERC-NOC] for all Atlantic tide gauge data building on current international data centre activities. We will distribute delayed mode Atlantic sea level data in one or more agreed formats building on IOC GLOSS Data Archive activities. This task will feed into WP7 and WP8 (specifically Task 8.2 – coastal flooding).

Deliverables:

D4.1 Sea level observing site catalogue: Systematic documentation of South Atlantic tide gauge site data and benchmarks. PM24

D4.4 Sustained transatlantic coastal observations Report: Strategy for transatlantic sustained measurements in the coastal ocean, based on the strengthened forum for interaction between US IOOS, GOOS regional alliances and EuroGOOS. PM39
