Coastal extremes tools and data

Tide gauges provide the most direct observational record of extreme sea levels at the coast.

Tools

We have recently released Canute 3.0, a sea level calculator for projections based on tide gauges or climate model data, combined with statistical analysis. This tool is in the final stages of development and testing on a new platform (Rshiny) and with additional data sets. The previous version, Canute2, operated by the Antarctic Climate & Ecosystems CRC also remains available at this time. Please note each version has a separate registration process.

CoastAdapt contains regional information on extreme sea levels, including future sea level rise for every coastal local council in Australia.

Data

See the Tide Gauge section and in particular the GESLA data collection for sea level extremes observations.
