Storm Surge Monitor

The storm surge monitor developed by scientists from the Institute for Coastal Research at the Helmholtz Zentrum Geesthacht provides information about changes in the storm surge climate in the North and the Baltic Seas over the past decades. It shows if and to what extent the current season is unusual when compared to previous years. For this purpose, we analyze near-real time tide-gauge measurements provided by the responsible authorities on PEGELONLINE and relate the data to long-term statistics developed at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht. Our analyses are updated once a day.
