EMODnet Physics DB of the platforms outside European Seas
EMODnet Physics DB of the platforms. Global collection.
EMODnet Physics DB of the Drifting buoys. Global collection. Autonomous measuring systems on buoys allow measurement of standard oceanographic parameters (temperature, salinity, currents). They are the Lagrangian way of measuring the sea currents.
EMODnet Physics DB of the gliders. Global collection.
EMODnet Physics DB of the HF Radars. Global collection. High frequency radar is a land station used to measure surface current velocity fields near the coast. The resulting surface plots provide a much higher resolution in space than previous techniques like current meter arrays. With a HF-radar system an entire current field maps (i.e. sea water velocity (m/s) and direction of sea water velocity (degrees)) can be generated in near real time.
EMODnet Physics DB of the mooring. Global collection. A mooring in oceanography is a collection of devices, connected to a wire and anchored on the sea floor. Since a mooring is stationary at a fixed location, it is also the Eulerian way of measuring ocean currents. The mooring is held up in the water column with various devices recording temperature, salinity, currents, etc.
EMODnet Physics DB of the platforms collecting Optical data. Global collection.
EMODnet Physics DB of the platforms collecting data in the water column
This product shows the locations of all stations in the PSMSL database (approximately 2000) for which monthly and annual mean sea level information is available. However, many stations have historically only been measured for some months or years. The geographical distribution of longer RLR records contains significant geographical bias towards the Northern Hemisphere (Europe, Japan and USA). Additionally tide gauge records do not cover the same time period
