Observational network

This network for shelf observations includes the XIOM network, which consists of a set of buoys, tide gauges and meteorological stations deployed along the Catalan coast to monitor the most significate shelf and coastal variables. It provides information on wave characteristics using four buoys extending from the north down to the south (Roses, Tordera, Llobregat and Cap Tortosa), meteorological parameters by means of six measuring stations (two on-land and four mounted on buoys), water temperature and currents at two depths using four buoys, and water level at selected points of the Catalan littoral using tidal gauges. This network was setup by the Generalitat de Catalunya, and is managed and maintained by the iCIEM structure.
