Detail

The purpose of this document is to define the strategic direction of the United Kingdom Coastal Monitoring and Forecast Service (UKCMF). The document explains the vision for UKCMF, the aims of the service, and how it proposes to achieve them. It also provides a timescale for carrying out the strategic activities.

The service is mainly used to provide forecasts of tide levels and wave conditions around the coastline of the United Kingdom. The service also provides valuable long-term data records on tide levels (both astronomical and surge components) and recorded wave data, which underpins the forecasting service and improves the base of evidence for other activities in the coastal environment.
