The Global Sea Level Observing System (GLOSS
) is an international programme conducted under the auspices of the Joint Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM
) of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC). GLOSS aims at the establishment of high quality global and regional sea level networks for application to climate, oceanographic and coastal sea level research. Read more here
The main component of GLOSS is the ‘Global Core Network’ (GCN) of ~300 sea level stations around the world for long term climate change and oceanographic sea level monitoring. As the primary U.S. partner in GLOSS, the UHSLC is responsible for the installation and maintenance of many GCN stations in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. We archive and provide access to GCN data in the form of high-frequency Research Quality and Fast-Delivery datasets (UHSLC data portal).
