REFMAR is not just about the provision of current sea level observations but is also about the ability to obtain sets of measurements covering several decades for certain stations. In order to achieve that, it is essential to save and digitize historical tide gauge data, all the more so as French has an extremely rich fund of historical records, both in terms of stations and in the volume of the data held, which bears witness to a past that is now over, to which it is impossible to return (to conduct measurements) but which it is interesting to examine in order to understand the present fluctuations in the sea level.  Annex A - N.Pouvreau's thesis (fr) gives an idea of the wealth of this heritage. Do not hesitate to contact us in order to inform us of your own tide gauge scientific assets and thus contribute to increasing the value and sharing these unique measurements.

 

 

 

Devant l'importance que revêt ces données historiques - et de la même manière que le sauvetage et la digitalisation des enregistrements météorologiques - une action, sous l'égide de GLOSS (lettre disponible ici) appuyée par l'OHI (lettre disponible ici) est lancée depuis le mois de décembre 2011 afin de connaître et inventorier les données historiques du niveau de la mer qui se trouvent sous format papier.
A noter que cette action s'inscrit pleinement dans le cadre des missions de REFMAR: "tout organisme, établissement ou service, collectant ou {retur l'OHI (lettre disponible ici) est lancée depuis le mois 899o, 2an style/2.pdf"e_Jttre disponible
