Abstract: This report describes the design, development and test activities of the inexpensive GNSS-based sea level monitoring device. The objective of the campaign was to demonstrate the feasibility of using a low cost Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) based sensor to measure and ultimately monitor in real-time the sea level. As the distance from the coast increases, the target application of predicting anomalous waves and alerting the population becomes more and more realistic. At the same time, errors between reference and deployed receiver tend to become less correlated and therefore the DGNSS process more challenging. The instrument builds on Galileo-capable single frequency GNSS receivers and ISM band radio transceivers used in combination with open source RTK software. The description of the work can be split in two main phases: before and after the first demonstration, up to the second recently carried out experiment in the Adriatic Sea.
