Notes: The data and products available through the web-site are made available in accordance with the IOC Oceanographic Data Exchange Policy as adopted by the 22nd session of IOC Assembly in Resolution 6. Other conditions might be applicable by contacting the relevant data originators.

The objective of this service is:

*to provide information about the operational status of global and regional networks of real time sea level stations

*to provide a display service for quick inspection of the raw data stream from individual stations.


This web-site initially focused on operational monitoring of sea level measuring stations in Africa and was developed from collaboration between Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and the ODINAFRICA project of IODE. The site has since been expanded to a global station monitoring service for real time sea level measuring stations that 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), North East Atlantic & Mediterranean (NEAMTWS), Pacific (PTWS) and the Caribbean (CARIBE-EWS).
