Objective

The objective is to examine and apply existing Baltic Sea coastal monitoring data and identify the data adequacy for establishing time series of long-term sea level variation and sediment balance per Baltic Sea coastal stretch.

 

The input data used include:

  • Monthly mean sea level data in Baltic Sea coast in past 10-100 years from PSMSL (Permanent Service of Mean Sea Level - http://www.psmsl.org/data/)
  • Land rise data Baltic Sea coast in past 10-100 years from DTU-Space
  • Baltic Sea long-term ocean hindcast data (40years, from DMI ocean-ice model)
  • Long-term wave hindcast with a resolution of 6 nautical miles (DMI and TUT)
  • EMODnet-Geology and national coastal monitoring data from countries with substantial segments of sedimentary coasts was used as ground truth (collected by TUT).
