Workshop on Sea-Level Measurements in Hostile Conditions

State Oceanographic Institute
Moscow, Russian Federation, 13-15 March 2018

Sea level measurements often need to be carried out in what can be characterized as harsh or hostile environmental conditions. A significant part of the seas on the planet are covered with ice either on a permanent or seasonal basis. Many of them, in addition, often experience storms and high waves. Biological/ environmental/logistic factors as well as increasing requirements and expectations for performance can add to the challenges of operating a sea level measurement station in these conditions. This workshop will discuss the technical options available for making good sea level measurements in such conditions.
