Port of Brest

 

The first measurements date back to 1679. They were made by astronomers Jean Picard and Philippe de la Hire. The first automatic recorder (tide gauge) was installed in 1846 by Hydrographic Engineer Remi Chazallon. It remained operational for almost 100 years until 1944, when the town was bombed and it was destroyed. This series spanning nearly 300 years was reconstructed by N. Pouvreau in his thesis, making the Brest sea level record the longest in France and possibly in the world.
