Measurement Techniques of a European Sea Level Service Site in KLAIPEDA
The technical equipment including hardware and software of European Sea Level Service (ESEAS) station KLAIPEDA (KLPD) is presented in the paper. The tide gauge Klaipeda (previous name – Memel) was established in 1811 in the east part of the Baltic Sea, at the estuaries of Curonian Lagoon. KLAIPEDA ID number at the Permanent Service of Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) is 080161. Upgrading of the station is done according to the ESEAS-RI project (Contract No EVR1-CT-2002-40025). KLPD site was equipped with a digital float tide gauge, sea-water conductivity sensor, air temperature, pressure and humidity sensors, wind speed and direction sensor and GPS receiver with antenna. The four characters ID KLPD and IERS DOMES number 10802M001 was assigned to the permanent GPS station KLAIPEDA. Tide gauge KLAIPEDA was certified as ESEAS Operational Site in 2003. It provides near real time (hourly) data to corresponding data servers. The data warehouse system is built on Gentoo Linux, with Apache2, MySQL 4.0.22 and PHP 4.3.9. The communication structure and software applications are also presented in the paper.
