This page provides access to files of data or documentation related to sea level science which have been contributed by authors for long term safe storage by the PSMSL and for use by other interested sea level scientists.
Martin Ekman, "The World's Longest Sea Level Series and a Winter Oscillation Index for Northern Europe 1774-2000", Small Publications in Historical Geophysics No.12, 2003
Note that all editions of the Small Publications in Historical Geophysics are now available as pdfs from the Summer Institute for Historical Geophysics web site.
Another useful resource on Baltic sea level is Martin Ekman's book "The Changing Level of the Baltic Sea during 300 Years: a Clue to Understanding the Earth" (link to pdf version from the Summer Institute for Historical Geophysics web site). The web site also provides information on how to order the book.
David Pugh, Link to extra material related to his 2004 book, "Changing Sea Levels" published by Cambridge University Press.
This page provides the results of a survey of European sea level infrastructure conducted by Woodworth, Rickards and Perez in 2008 as part of the European TRANSFER (Tsunami Risk ANd Strategies For the European Region) project. The pdf file constitutes a deliverable for the project and contains tables which list the attributes of tide gauges in each country.
The pdf contains an Annex 1 which was a draft of the paper "A Survey of European Sea Level Infrastructure" by Woodworth, Rickards and Perez, Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences, 9,927-934, 2009. The published paper differs from that in the Annex in small details only but the published version should be consulted for preference.
John Hunter, link to extra material related to the high-frequency data set from the Port Arthur tide gauge (June 1999 -September 2002). The data file can be downloaded by Clicking here. For further information please contact Dr. John Hunter.
John Hunter, link to digitized versions of sea level data collected by Thomas Lempriere at Port Arthur, Tasmania, Australia. They cover the period 1840, 1841 and 1842, but are incomplete for 1840. Description of the files can be downloaded by Clicking here. For further information please contact Dr. John Hunter.
Philip Woodworth, Tidal and Meteorological Data of William Hutchinson. William Hutchinson was a notable 18th century Liverpool privateer, dockmaster and inventor. He made many tidal and meteorological measurements as part of his dockmaster duties, of which the heights and times of high waters during 1764-1793 are the most well-known. The tidal data which survive for 1768 onwards, together with a range of meteorological information and related material, was included on a CD that was produced as part of the Liverpool'08 celebrations. The contents of that CD can be downloaded here (17 MB).
Philip Woodworth, "A survey of recent changes in the main components of the ocean tide", Continental Shelf Research, 2010, doi:10.1016/j.csr.2010.07.002. The readme file should be consulted for explanation of the additional files in this zip file.
Peter Hogarth recently published an an article in Journal of Geophysical Research investigating acceleration of sea level rise. In the course of this research, he extended the tide gauge time series for several locations. Peter has made available to us his extensive notes and the additional data.
