1 Summarizing Information to Update the SCAR–GGI Permanent Tide Gauge Observatory Sites, Antarctica Kazuo Shibuya and Shigeru Aoki National Institute of Polar Research, Japan presented at the AGS01 Meeting at St. Petersburg July, 2001 Story A) Occupation records B) ITRF coordinates C) Instrument D) Calibration
2 We remind the task of GIANT Program Summary for the Program 5. Tide Gauge Data, at the XXVI SCAR Meeting of July 2000, Tokyo, Japan. GOAL: To consolidate the collection of and access to Antarctic tide gauge information Activities 1.Gather information on history of establishment and operation of Antarctic tide gauges 2.Research and list all permanent and significant tide gauges established for hydrographic information and scientific studies 3.List all known sea level determinations, dates and accuracy estimates for all significant tide gauge 4.Identify benchmark values and connections to GPS observations sites 5.Facilitate index data into the Geodetic data base 6.Facilitate the delivery of data to the Southern Ocean Sea Level Centre [SOSLC] 7.Post meta data on web – 2004 (Facilitate guidelines on establishment and calibrating on bottom mounted and acoustic type gauges in Antarctic conditions)
3 Bibliography about sea level variations from the Report to SCAR The most recent one is: Oikawa, K., and Iwamoto, K. (1999): Oceanographic data of the 38th Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition from November 1996 to March 1997, JARE Data Rep. No. 246 (Oceanography 21), 50pp, National Institute of Polar Research, Tokyo. Tidal data from JARE-21 through JARE-37 are available. JAPAN Hourly tidal observation data from each Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition were published by the JARE Data Reports Oceanography Series.
