History of the stationSETE

The GPS installation at Sète is motivated by its relative proximity (about 14 km) to the ground track of the former Topex/Poseidon and current Jason radar altimetry satellites (see pictures at the tide gauge webpage, link below). In addition, historical tide gauge observations are reported at the nearby (250 metres) Saint-Louis lighthouse between 1850 and 1860.
