Tide gauge sea level data, for the South Pacific. PSLMP (South Pacific Sea Level Monitoring Project) hourly averages : sea level, pressure, water temperature, air temperature, wind direction, wind gust and wind speed (1993 onwards) {DRAFT stopgap metadata}

This dataset is hourly data values (averaged from 6 minute values), per seaframe station, for sea level, barometric pressure, water temperature, air temperature, sea level Adjusted Residuals, sea level Residuals, wind speed, wind gust, and wind direction*.

Data is from approximately 1993, from the following 14 tide gauge stations in the South Pacific: Cook Islands (1993+ ), Federated States of Micronesia (Pohnpei) (2001+ ), Fiji,(Viti Levu - Suva) (1992+ ), Fiji (Viti Levu - Lautoka) (1992+ ), Kiribati (Tarawa - Betio) (1993+ ), Marshall Islands (Majuro - Uliga) (1993+ ), Nauru (Aiwo) (1993+ ), New Zealand (Jackson Bay, South Island ) (1996+ ), Papua New Guinea (Manus - Lombrum) (1994+ ), Samoa (Upolu - Apia) (1993+ ), Solomon Islands (Guadalcanal - Honiara) (1994+ ), Tonga (Tongatapu - Nuku'alofa) (1993+ ), Tuvalu (Funafuti - Fongafale) (1993+ ), Vanuatu (Efate - Port Vila) (1993+ ). A summary of each station's position (lat, long, SSBM, ) is available from http://www.bom.gov.au/oceanography/projects/spslcmp/data/data.shtml More station detail (including latitude, longitude, monitoring equipment, the station's BOM Station#, ANTT#, GLOSS ID, etc), are available by clicking the port name, on the above webpage, or by using this URL formula: http://www.bom.gov.au/ntc/IDO50000/IDO50000_[ANTT#].pdf eg for TUVALU http://www.bom.gov.au/ntc/IDO50000/IDO50000_67440.pdf (the ANTT# is provided in the Keywords section of this metadata record) Dates and times, in the data, are given in Universal Time Coordinated (UTC). Sea level values are in metres above Tide Gauge Zero (e.g. 1.205 metres)

Missing or erroneous values are set to a value of -9999 SEAFRAME stations measure sea level very accurately, and also record meteorological parameters (such as air and water temperature, pressure and wind observations).
