Sponsored by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID). The project's aim is to help South Pacific Forum member countries to understand the processes, scale and implications of sea level rise and extreme event variability in the region. By means of a network of instruments operating over several decades, the project accurately records variations in long-term sea level and land movement in the South Pacific. NTC provides the sea level component. The information collected supports scientific reports on sea level variations from climatic and gravitational influences, as well as geographic variations through tectonic movement and atoll decay.
The project is currently in its fourth five year phase. Information about Phase IV of the project can be found on the Project website.
There are 12 stations monitoring sea level and related parameters. Eleven of these were commissioned between 1992 and 1994, a station at Pohnpei FSM was completed in 2001. The map below shows the station locations.
The following reports contain information on sea level and related parameters at various locations in the South Pacific as collected for the South Pacific Sea Level and Climate Monitoring Project.
- Monthly Data Reports
- Consolidated Data Reports
- Pacific Country Reports
- Monthly Sea Level and Meteorological Statistics
- Hourly Sea Level and Meteorological Data
- Tide Calendars
