European sea level service research infrastructure

Objective

The European Sea Level Service (ESEAS) comprises most of the sea level observing and research resources in Europe. The network of ESEAS Observing Sites will by improved and access to the scattered sea level database standardised. The extensive tide gauge data base will be utilised to study sea level variations on decadal to century time scales. An empirical model describing decadal to inter-decadal sea level variations will be derived through combination of tide gauge and satellite altimetry observations. The factors causing these variations will be identified and their contribution quantified. Particular emphasis will be on the North Atlantic Oscillation. A statistical description of the variability of extreme sea levels will be given for the entire European coasts in order to assess future risks.
