Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that we will be convening a new session at the AGU 2018 Fall Meeting, entitled "Integration of GNSS into Water Level Observation Networks: Priorities, Technologies, and Benefits". We encourage you to consider submitting an abstract to this focused session, and to forward this announcement to others with an interest in this topic.

AGU Session G015: Integration of GNSS into Water Level Observation Networks: Priorities, Technologies, and Benefits
Co-organized by the Geodesy and Ocean Sciences Sections

Tide and water level station records are some of the longest and most meticulously-kept earth observation records, but these data were historically only tied to local staffs or nearby bench marks on land. Integration of GNSS at these stations not only provides efficiencies in operational station maintenance cycles, but also adds value to these long-term water level records by connecting them to national and global reference frames and enabling the quantification of relative sea level trend components. Despite the recognized value of fusing these oceanographic and geodetic tools, only a subset of global water level stations fully leverage GNSS. This session invites the community to share new research that demonstrates the value of GNSS-linked or GNSS-enabled water level stations, exchange knowledge about best practices for instrumentation, and showcase innovative technologies or methodologies that will advance reliable, effective, and informed use of GNSS in water level observation networks.

Full session details and an abstract submission link are available at

The deadline for all abstract submissions is Wednesday, 1 August 23:59 EDT. Submissions received by the early deadline of 25 July have a chance to win a $100 US gift card. We look forward to having you join us in Washington D.C. this December. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions!

Kind regards,
