GLOSS -The Global Sea Level Observing System

The Global Sea Level Observing System (GLOSS) oversees the operation of, and collection and management of data from a global network of tide gauge stations, in support of a variety of operational activities in Members/Member States and also of global climate studies. The system is coordinated by the GLOSS Group of Experts, which is now a component body of JCOMM. Amongst other things, GLOSS operates a GLOSS Core Network (GCN) as well as regional GLOSS networks; it provides tide gauges for ongoing altimeter calibration (GLOSS-ALT); provides data and information to international scientific study groups such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC); and prepares materials for training, outreach and research. GLOSS information, publications and data can be accessed through a GLOSS website.
