Dataset: UH Sea Level Center (UHSLC) Tide Gauge Data ("Fast"): Monthly Data/Rikitea French Polynesia (23-08S 134-57W 1969-2003)
Data type: POINT
Collection type: TimeSeries
Naming Authority: edu.hawaii.soest.uhslc
summary: The GLOSS/CLIVAR (formerly known as WOCE) "fast delivery" sea level data is distributed as hourly, daily, and monthly values. These data are processed from a globally distributed set of sea level gauges and made available to users wit hin three months of data collection. This is a "fast" turnaround time compared to the more thoroughly quality-controlled "research-quality" sea level data also distributed through the UHSLC at http://uhslc.soest.hawaii.edu/rqds.html. Direct inquiries on the data or its access to Shikiko Nakahara at email@example.com. Further inquiries should be made to Mark Merrifield, Principal Investigator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

funding: This project is supported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate and Global Change program and is one of the activities of the University of Hawaii Sea Level Center (UHSLC) in the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST). Primary support for the UHSLC comes from NOAA's Office of Global Programs (OGP). Funding is also provided by NASA under the JASON program for the development of In Situ Tide Gauge/GPS Stations for Monitoring the Temporal Drift of Satellite Altimeters. The UHSLC also hosts the Joint Archive for Sea Level (JASL), a collaborative effort with the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC).
