Keeping Track of Sea Levels: the Global Sea Level Observing System (GLOSS)

In terms of sea-level rise, the Global Sea Level Observing System (GLOSS) is a major contributor to the Climate and Coastal Modules of GOOS. It aims at the establishment of high quality global and regional sea-level networks for application to climate, oceanographic and coastal sea-level research.

The main component of GLOSS is the 'Global Core Network' (GCN) of 290 sea-level stations around the world for long-term climate change and oceanographic sea-level monitoring. The Core Network is designed to provide an approximately evenly-distributed sampling of global coastal sea-level variations.
