Water levels integrated into the St-Lawrence Global Observatory's "Marine Conditions" application

March 22, 2016

The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) and the St. Lawrence Global Observatory (SLGO) have greatly improved the Marine Conditions application on the SLGO’s web portal, a valued source of information for marine industry players, by integrating data on water levels from the Canadian Hydrographic Service of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

The SLGO web portal, and more specifically its Marine Conditions application, make it possible to get an overview of data in near real time on territory stretching from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

The addition of water levels greatly improves this web application that is a focal point of data for users of the St. Lawrence River, especially seagoing personnel. In addition to water levels, the Marine Conditions application includes weather conditions and several other informative factors.

The integration and dissemination of scientific data from the SLGO’s various member organizations create a wide array of data on air, currents, water, waves and winds, all available to general public.  The Marine Conditions application bundles intuitive features that simplify search parameters and station types according to a set period of time and place. There are various display modes: map, tab, grid or real time.
