Italian national tide gauge network (RMN)

The Italian national tide gauge network (RMN – Rete Mareografica Nazionale) continuously monitors the sea level and a number of related meteorological and physical parameters.

Data (real time and time series) are available at:

RMN includes 36 coastal stations. It is the hugest network for sea level measurement in the Mediterranean, collecting real time series of sea level and meteorological parameters every 1 minute. It integrates the National meteorological system. Data gathered are used for determining tides and seiches and can support the identification and characterization of early tidal waves (tsunami) and of storm tides. Some stations also provide data used for the qualitative characterization of environmentally sensitive marine areas.
