Estimation of the mean daily discharge at the mouth of the main rivers flowing into Atlantic and Bay of Biscay. The dataset has rivers from Barbate (the southermost) to Odet (the northernmost). + info: Otero et al.

In 2013, the Instituto Español de Oceanografía (IEO) developed a maritime data downstream service (http://playas.ieo.es) particularly focused on providing sea surface temperature (SST) at Iberian Atlantic beaches, a parameter that, although basic for the scientific community, it was certainly rather unusual in those weather forecast reports to the wider public. Thus, although the web-service enhances the visualization of SST at more than one thousand beaches, it also provides 3-day forecast of a set of other meteo-ocean variables (air temperature, wind speed and direction, wave height, period and direction, and tides).
The tide gauge of Palma de Mallorca is located in the eastern part of the harbour and it measures the sea level from 1964 to 1966. Note that another station (PSMSL ID 1892) was recording data from 1997 onwards in a near location.
The tide gauge of Vigo is currently located at the fisheries harbour and measures the sea level from 1943 onwards.
The tide gauge of Santa Cruz de La Palma is located in the harbour and it measured the sea level from 1997 to 2018. This station replaced the previous one (PSMSL ID 585)
The tidal gauge of Málaga is located at the harbour and it measures sea level from 1943 onwards, with a gap between 1959 and 1961.
The tide gauge of Pasajes measured the sea level from 1948 to 1963.
The tide gauge of Puerto de la Luz (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) is located at the reina Sofía dock and it records sea level data from 1949 onwards.
