First EuroSea tide gauge network workshop announced

20 October 2020

EuroGOOS have announced the date of the first of two workshops to be organised as part of the EuroSea programme, which will focus on experiences, challenges and discussion around the operation of tide gauge networks. The PSMSL and the National Oceanography Centre are involved in the organisation of the workshop and, together with other colleagues from other sea level data centres, will be discussing how to improve data flow to and from data centres. There will also be sessions on emerging technologies, the use of GNSS at tide gauges to measure land movement, how events such as meteo-tsunami influence extreme sea levels, and reports on how COVID-19 has affected the operation of sea level networks.

Originally, the workshop was due to be a face-to-face meeting focused on European networks, but as COVID-19 has forced the meeting online, the organising committee made the decision to take the opportunity to invite colleagues from across the world to contribute.

The meeting takes place over three half day sessions, on 12-14 January 2021. Registration is free, see the official announcement for further details.

A second workshop focused on quality control of tide gauge data is planned for 2022.
