Sommario: The ESEAS-RI project is established by ESEAS to support the research infrastructure of ESEAS and facilitate full scientifiic exploitaiton of European sea level observations. This project is supported by the European Commission under the contract number EVR1-2001-00042. The availability of a quality-controlled database of hourly tide gauge data, and the successful upgrading of the ESEAS network are major milestones. The project is expected to result in an major improvement of the research infrastructure comprised in the ESEAS. The research carried out in the project will result in an empirical model of sea level variations, which provides a unique basis for future studies of climate processes at decadal to inter-decadal time scales, particularly the North Atlantic Oscillation, as well as a coherent description of the occurrence of extreme sea levels.

The project will stimulate the integration of European sea level research community into a larger network and thus promote coordinated research. The work in the project will directly result in contributions to environmental assessment reports and will also give information with respect to obstacles for the exploitation of existing multi-national databases in terms of e.g. technical, data quality and policy, legal and organisational issues
