Intervention by the SHOM to change the acquisition central of the tide gauge. Before it was an Elta system, now it is a Campbell. Also, installation of the meteorological sensor and the camera
T.Garmond, T.Donal and V. Kerebel went to Dunkerque to level all the instruments and the benchmarks close to the tide gauge GNSS installation.
Also, the IP adress of the GNSS receiver needed to be change so that it be linked with the tide gauge network.
The 06th of December, the Leica GR25 firmware has been updated to the V4.31 version.
An altimetric control has been done.
The 10th of July, T. Willaert, surveyor at the Dunkerque harbour went to inspect the Leica GR25 receiver. He looks at the LEDs, the c) and f) (concerning the downloadind the data) were red so the receiver did not download the data. He restarted the receiver. Then, all LEDs return to their green colour.

T. Willaert, surveyor at the Dunkerque harbour went to inspect the Leica GR25 receiver. He looks at the LEDs and restart the receiver. All looks fine now.
On June 20, 2017, an email received from Pierre Touche from the RGP at the IGN, informed us that no data has been received from the DUNQ station since day 133/2017, that is to say on May 13, 2017 inclusive. Etienne Poirier contacted Thomas Donal at the IGN then David Jennquin and Thierry Willaert, surveyor at the port of Dunkerque. A restart procedure is sent to them to restart the GR25.

Subject: DUNQ station is operational
A new internet connection has been installed at Dunkerque tide observatory by our colleagues from the French national hydrographic service (SHOM - Séverine Enet) together with our colleagues from French IGN (Thomas Donal).
The GNSS permanent station DUNQ located at the tide gauge and part of EUREF is now repaired.
PS: The station is back to normal functioning since DOY 182 2020/06/30 session o.
