Development of a new sea level product covering European Seas and the Global Ocean

31 Jan 2022

The Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) has developed a first version of a web application with the “Total Sea Level” variable. It consists of a shapefile with a dataset of “Tide Gauge” platforms from EMODnet Physics. Figure 1 shows the first demonstrator implemented with the buoy on Venice (IOC_VE19).

EMODnet Physics offers standardized and easy to use machine to machine services that offer data and data access to implement third-party applications. The CMCC service is based on these M2M tools.

The data from the EMODnet Physics portal allow users to analyze the information about the “Sea Level” variable; the related dataset is populated with a web request to the EMODnet Physics web service through a simple HTTP GET request.

The CMCC solution presents a demonstrator of end-user application and decisional support dashboard systems to support public authorities in their daily management activities.
