Temporal development of residence times and the power impact to the German Baltic Sea coastline induced by storm surge events
Within the project AMSeL Baltic Sea funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) a database of (high frequency) sea level recordings has been built to analyze spatial and temporal mean and extreme sea level development in the Baltic Sea. The database contains time series from 185 stations, covering all Baltic Sea abutting nations for time spans from 2016 down to 1774 (Kelln et al. 2017). Beside high frequency data we also collected additional historical data to compare and improve data quality from publicly available datasets (PSMSL) and time series length. The temporal resolution of historical data varies mostly between single event data, as well as monthly or yearly mean values. Within the presented investigation the focus lies in the analysis of hourly datasets from six different stations along the German Baltic coastline: Flensburg, Kiel-Holtenau, Travemünde, Wismar, Warnemünde and Sassnitz. An overview of available stations all across the Baltic Sea and in detail along the German coast highlighting the locations of the investigated stations is shown in Fig.1.
