Data Center Description
The Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) was established in 1933 as an
international data centre for mean sea level. Today their responsibilities are
the collection, publication and distribution of data, and the analysis and
interpretation of this data. They also give information and advice on
practical aspects of sea level measurement and data reduction. PSMSL operates
under the auspices of the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU).
PSMSL is participating in the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC)
global sea level network (GLOSS). The sea level databank for the World Ocean
Circulation Experiment (WOCE) is also at Bidston Observatory alongside the
PSMSL.
