Sea Level Station Monitoring Facility 2560 1700 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) – Belgium

The Sea Level Station Monitoring Facility (SLSMF) is an information and display service connecting 1034 real-time sea-level stations in a global and regional network ( of 170 global data providers.

The SLSMF provides a free online service for a quick inspection of the raw data stream from individual sea-level stations. This data is crucial for the provision of early warning of rapid-onset sea-level hazards. Additionally, we will support capacity-building opportunities to ensure equal warning capabilities and support the resilience of coastal and maritime communities.

The stations are part of IOC programmes i.e. (i) the Global Sea Level Observing System Core Network, and (ii) the networks under the regional tsunami warning systems in the Indian Ocean (IOTWS). Northeast Atlantic & Mediterranean (NEAMTWS). Pacific (PTWS) and the Caribbean (CARIBE-EWS).
