NEWLY PUBLISHED: Volume 5 (Radar Gauges) of Manual on Sea Level Measurement and Interpretation
Volume V of the Manual on Sea Level Measurement and Interpretation has recently been published (IOC Manuals and Guides No.14; JCOMM Technical Report No.89; 2016). It is devoted specifically to "Radar Tide Gauges". This technology is increasingly replacing previous tide gauge technologies in many countries. At the 13th meeting of the GLOSS Group of Experts in November 2013 in Liverpool, a new edition of the Manual was proposed that would focus on this particular technology and pros and cons with its use.
