Building on RAPID, the RAPID-WATCH programme aims to deliver a decade-long time series of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC).
19) UK Tide Gauge Network — Ongoing
A network of tide gauges set up as a result of severe flooding along the east coast of England in 1953. The network forms the basis for present day storm surge forecasts.
20) UK Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Study (UK SOLAS) — 2003 - 2010
The UK's contribution to the SOLAS programme which aims to clarify the complex interactions between the ocean and atmosphere. The focus is on chemical exchanges that affect marine productivity and climate.
21) UK World Ocean Circulation Experiment (UK WOCE) — Completed 2002
The UK's contribution to the WOCE project which studied the deep oceans and carried out theoretical and numerical modelling studies.
1) Delta Flume experiment — Completed 2001
The Delta Flume experiment aimed to verify and quantify hydrodynamic and sedimentary processes involved with resuspension of sediments in oscillatory-only flows at full-scale.
2) European Directory of the Initial Ocean-observing System (EDIOS) — Completed 2004
The EDIOS project constructed and implemented an ocean observing meta database, providing a new tool for searching for information on observing systems operating in European waters.
3) European Sea-Level Service (ESEAS) — Ongoing
ESEAS is an international collaboration of organisations operating more than 170 tide gauges along European coasts.
