UK National Tide Gauge Network


UK National Tide Gauge Network

The UK National Tide Gauge Network is part of the National Tidal and Sea Level Facility. It was set up in 1953 to record sea levels around the coast of the UK, after the east coast of England was affected by severe floods.

Gauges positioned at 44 locations around the UK coast record data, which is archived at the British Oceanographic Data Centre in Liverpool. Once quality controlled, this data is made available for scientific use.
