NODC Standard Product: Sea level data (TOGA and PSMSL) through August 1994 (NODC Accession 0095192)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The data on this CD-ROM are provided in two main directories. One directory contains Tropical Ocean-Global Atmosphere (TOGA) project sea level data, file formats, and associated documentation. The other main directory contains the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) data, documentation, and a few related data sets.

The TOGA sea level data are managed by the TOGA Sea Level Center at the University of Hawaii in cooperation with the NODC through the Joint Archive for Sea Level. This archive holds hourly, daily, and monthly sea level values in standard formats from 289 sea level stations in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans as of July 1994. The data are primarily in the tropical ocean (30N - 30S).

The Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level is based at the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory, Bidston Observatory, United Kingdom, and the PSMSL data set contains monthly and annual mean values of sea level from approximately 1500 tide gauge stations around the world as of August 1994. Other related data sets are also included such as the IAPSO (International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean) Tidal constants data set and the Revised Local Reference annual mean values.

Copies of these discs are no longer available from the NODC Online Store.
