The goal of Theme 3 is the demonstration of the value of the GGOS Infrastructure for an integrated Sea Level Monitoring and Forecasting. This includes
- identification of the requirements for a proper understanding of global and regional/local sea-level rise and variability especially in so far as they relate to geodetic monitoring provided by the GGOS infrastructure.
- to establish links to external organizations (e.g. GEO) and advocate the GGOS contribution to sea level science.
- identification of a preliminary set of practical projects, which will demonstrate the viability, and the importance of geodetic measurements to mitigation of sea-level rise at a local or regional level.
