        abstract:  GSLN stations are fixed platforms on islands and in the coastal zone that measure and report sea level information in real-time using geostationary satellites and the GTS.
        purpose:  The GSLN collects and distributes continuous long-term sealevel observations that are used for calibration and verification of satellite altimeters and numerical model output. Products from the system are used for estimates of sea level variations in climate studies. The network also provides data used for the production of tide prediction tables, and the observations are used in real-time to monitor storm surge and tsunami events. The GSLN is designed to provide global sea level information for use in multiple NOAA missions including climate monitoring and prediction and studies of climate phenomena such as ENSO. The GSLN also provides support for storm surge monitoring and the NOAA supported Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) and provides information for various programs such as WOCE, CLIVAR, GODAE, GLOSS, and the NOPP NVODS.

        supplementalInformation:  The GSLN is a global network of automated in situ continuously operating sea level stations located throughout the world's oceans excluding the U.S. coastal zone and Pacific and Atlantic Ocean Island Possessions. Approximately 45 stations are directly supported and provide information in real-time. Data are collected from an additional 70 stations in near-real time and from over 200 other stations in a delayed mode. Each directly supported station consists of a set of water and reference level sensors connected to a data collection platform (DCP) that transmits hourly data messages back to JIMAR University of Hawaii Sea Level Center (UHSLC) using the GOES, METEOSAT, and GMS DCSand the GTS. The DCP and supporting hardware are typically contained in a waterproof enclosures or a specially designed tide houses that are located on an existing fishing pier, wharf, or a specially reinforced structure. Tide staffs, wells, and high precision instruments gauges are typically installed just below or near the instrument shelter. The water level sensors are surveyed into a local network of tidal bench marks, and geodetic GPS stations have been installed at sites identified as key for satellite altimeter work. The station components operate from DC Power (batteries). Solar panels provide trickle charge to the batteries. The data messages are processed by automated software packages as they are received. The processed date are reviewed by qualified personnel on a daily basis and distributed through web and anonymous ftp sites. The IOC was established with the installation of the first satellite transmitting tide gauges on islands in the Pacific.
