Installation of a RONIM tide gauge at Dieppe

 

From 9 to 13 February 2009, two technicians from SHOM went to Dieppe in order to install the 32nd permanent tide gauge of the sea level observation network (RONIM). An Optiflex telemetry radar is now installed in the tide gauge equipment room situated on the Henri IV jetty; it replaces the OTT R16 float tide gauge operated by the port.

For this installation, SHOM received technical support from its local partner: the Joint Association of the portof Dieppe. Data on the height of sea levels at Dieppe will now be available in REFMAR in non-real time. Later, the tide gauge will transmit its data in real time.
