In May of 1999 a workshop was held concerning the use of sea level data for scientific research, with an emphasis on the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. This workshop complements earlier workshops focused on the Southern and Pacific Oceans. These workshops are intended to establish the importance of ongoing efforts to improve the global sea level database in order to support research programmes aimed at better understanding of the variability of the Earth's climate. The workshop consisted of 27 talks, all given in plenary, over 1.5 days. After the workshop, 22 papers or abstracts were collected and they comprise this report. The topics covered were wide ranging, spanning from large-scale oceanography, ENSO variations, Arctic and Antarctic sea level variability, the sea level variations of enclosed seas and the Mediterranean, the development of tsunami warning systems, coastally-trapped waves and upwelling, tides, and to the impact of space geodetic techniques on sea level measurements.
