dc.description.abstractUnder the auspices of the International Association for Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO) a committee was established to identify the oceanographic and geophysical requirements for fixing Tide Gauge Bench Maries (TGBM's) in an absolute terrestrial coordinate system; to evaluate the technology for fixing TGBM's; and to malce recommendations to the Commission on Mean Sea Level and Tides (IAPSO) of a strategy for coordinated global fixing ofTGBM's and for making the results centrally·available. To meet these goals, the committee met for a several day session at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in November, 1988. From this workshop came a series of technical conclusions, plus specific recommendations to achieve the goals of the committee. Included in these discussions were Very Long Baseline Interferometry, Satellite Laser Ranging, Lunar Laser Ranging, Global Positioning System, and Absolute Gravity Meters, as well as mechanisms for logging and distributing the results from these systems, perhaps via the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) in Britain.en_US
