Summary
Abstract: The data on this CD-ROM are provided in two main directories. One
directory contains Tropical Ocean-Global Atmosphere (TOGA) project sea
level data, file formats, and associated documentation. The other main
directory contains the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL)
data, documentation, and a few related data sets.

The TOGA sea level data is managed by the TOGA Sea Level Center at the
University of Hawaii in cooperation with the NODC through the Joint
Archive for Sea Level. This archive holds hourly, daily, and monthly sea
level values in standard formats from 289 sea level stations in the
Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans as of July 1994. The data are
primarily in the tropical ocean (30N - 30S).

The Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level is based at the Proudman
Oceanographic Laboratory, Bidston Observatory, United Kingdom, and the
PSMSL data set contains monthly and annual mean values of sea level from
approximately 1500 tide gauge stations around the world as of August
1994. Other related data sets are also included such as the IAPSO
(International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean) Tidal
constants data set and the Revised Local Reference annual mean values.
